Child Watch

About Child Watch

More than ever, busy parents need support. When parents come to the Y for a class, group activity or workout, their kids need a safe, enriching environment where they can build healthy, trusting relationships with other kids and adults. At Child Watch, children ages 6 weeks to 8 years old play under the supervision of caring, trained Y staff. At the same time, their parents are able to relax and connect with other Y members and enjoy healthy activities at the Y.

Child Watch is available to all Defiance Area YMCA members. Children whose parents are family members of the Y are charged a rate of $3.00 per child for the first child and $1.50 for additional children. Parents must be in the Defiance Area YMCA facility while their children are in Child Watch. Please contact Amy Glysz at [email protected] with any questions.

*Child Watch is not being offered at this time due to COVID and the employee shortage. We will make an announcement when this program will resume.*
