The Foothills Area YMCA Child Watch is an up to 90-minute service for members of the Foothills Area YMCA who have a Family Membership. Parents and guardians must remain in the facility while the kids are at Child Watch.

Our program goals are to support and strengthen families by providing an environment for children ages 6 weeks to 10 yrs that is safe for them to learn through socialization, explorations, choice and creative play. Your children are provided a positive experience in a secure and happy environment. Child Watch is staffed by loving and caring staff who are CPR/First Aid certified. All Child Watch staff are fully trained and references are checked. All staff trained in Child Abuse Prevention. Low ratios are implemented at all times.
