Child Care

Kids' Corner

**Please note, Kids' Corner is currently unavailable due to the ongoing pandemic. Check back for updates and more information.**

Kids’ Corner is a drop-off child care program for infants, toddlers and children between the ages of 3 months and 11 years. 

Formally known as “Child Watch”, Kids’ Corner is a free member benefit for WSYMCA Family Members. Our caring staff will supervise your children while you take a group exercise class, work out on your own or swim in our pools.

Please note, parents must remain on the YMCA property while their child is in Kids’ Corner.

Individual Members may utilize the program for a small daily fee. 

We encourage parents to visit Kids’ Corner with your child(ren), to meet our CPR and First Aid certified staff and to find their favorite activity before using the program for the first time.
