THE Y FOR
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.

CHILD WATCH

Welcome To Child Watch

As a benefit for members with Family and One Parent Family memberships, the Peninsula Family YMCA provides drop-in child care for children 6 weeks to 12 years. Our trained, attentive, and nurturing staff engage children in games and activities, read to children, and rock babies when needed.


Child Watch is FREE for Family and One-Parent Family members while using on-site Peninsula Family YMCA facilities. Parents can focus on their workout or take another child to swim lessons, while their child plays in a safe environment.


  • Parents must stay on-site.
  • For the well-being of children, each child is limited to 2 hours per day in the Child Watch facility.
  • YMCA Membership Card is required for drop-off and pick-up.

Activities and Outside Play Time

Weather permitting, children will be taken outside to the Child Watch play area. With this in mind, we recommend you apply sunscreen to your child prior to arrival.
