Child Watch



Age 6 weeks to 12 years.

Child Watch is designed to allow the entire family to utilize the Y at the same time. Child Watch is not a babysitting service. It is an opportunity for family members to enjoy all the YMCA has to offer. Within Child Watch, we offer structured activities that involve children in arts and crafts, story time, games, coloring, painting, puzzles and other interactive play in our Child Watch rooms. We also offer the Family Adventure Center for kids up through 2nd grade and under 48 inches tall in Olean and Bradford. School-age kids can get involved in various Youth Fitness classes or try out the Climbing Wall (Olean only) or play games in the gymnasium, swim in the pool and much, much more!

Participating in Child Watch is fun and easy! Stop by the Child Watch Room and register your child. Our trained staff will escort your child to any class or activity while you are working out. After exercising, pick up your child. It is that easy!

A parent MUST remain in the building while children are checked into Child Watch.
