Let our YMCA “Child Watch” be one of your child’s first Y experiences. Toddlers, pre-scholars, and children 10 and under will look forward to coming to the Y to join in activities in a safe and secure atmosphere. Our staff offers a warm and fun environment that nurtures a sense of belonging. We care about your child!

Please register for Child Watch 24 hours before time of service. If you are not registered by 9pm, we can not guarantee that staff will be available. You may call to check on openings for those times when you can not provide 24 hours notice. We do charge double when a child is left in our care that is not registered. When leaving your child, their name must be signed into the log and you must remain in the building. Our Child Watch staff does not change diapers.

Members and Non-Members using the YMCA Child Watch service must purchase a “Child Watch Pass”. There is absolutely no pay as you go!!! All children 10 yrs and under who are in the Child Watch area will be charged for the service. Children over 10 yrs may not remain in the area! The cost of the pass is $10.00 for Members and $20.00 for Non-Members. Each pass is good for 10 hours of Child Watch. An hour of service is 60 minutes and anything over 75 minutes will be charged another hour. Example: You sign up for services at 8:00 am and do not pick up your child until 9:20 am. You will be charged 2 hours of service. (We will no longer acknowledge quarter and half hour payments. Everything will run by the hour.)

The Juniata Valley YMCA reserves the right to change or alter all or any Child Watch hours. Child watch hours may be cancelled if low or no sign-ups are registered. Please remember to sign-up; 24 hr advanced notice is required!
