Welcome To Child WatchThe Rancho Family YMCA provides drop-in child care for children 8 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 Rancho Family YMCA facilities. Parents must stay on-site. Parents can focus on their workout or take another child swim lessons or dance class, while their child plays in a safe environment.
For the well-being of children, each child is limited to 2 hours per day in the Child Watch facility. Please note that we do not accept children within 20 minutes of closing time.
