Child Watch

Enjoy your work out while your children play, explore and learn with experienced, caring Y staff. During your child's stay, Y staff will provide a fun experience in a safe environment.

Kearney Family Y Child Watch accommodates children 6 weeks of age through 6 years. Included with Family Membership and limited to 1 hour 30 minutes a day per child.

For all other members and guests, this service is provided at $4 per hour payable at the Service Desk when signing in. Parents must remain on the Y premises while children are in the play area. Bottles, diapers and baby wipes must be provided by the parent.

Parents should check with Child Watch to determine availability before dropping off their child. Space is allocated on a first-come, first-accepted basis. When the room is full, it may be necessary to wait until a space is vacated. Child Watch may limit the number of children in the room for safety reasons.
