Beginning Monday, September 14, the YMCA of Greater Rochester will be reopening Child Watch at many of our locations. Child Watch is a member benefit for those with Individual Parent, Family and Family Plus memberships, giving parents and guardians the chance to have their kids be in a safe, clean space while they workout or take a class.
Child Watch is available for kids six weeks to 12 years old. Just like all of the Y’s spaces, Child Watch will be limited to 33% capacity.
Things will be different as Child Watch reopens; the biggest is that advance registration is required. We want to help make sure our families are prepared.
You will register for Child Watch the same way you register for class and lap swim.
Once you get to Child Watch, YMCA staff will take the temperature of each child before they can enter. Parents and guardians will not be allowed in but will sign their child(ren) in just as they have before.
To maintain our capacity guidelines, time at Child Watch will be limited to 75 minutes. There will also be staggered times for ease of drop-off and pick-up, and to allow for cleaning in between. Child Watch will be closed in the middle of the day to allow for extra cleaning. Times for Child Watch have been set to align with Group Exercise Classes.
As a reminder: Masks that cover mouth and nose are mandatory for all members two and older due to guidelines issued by the New York State Governor. Staff will be wearing masks at all times.
|Monday-Friday||8:30 am to Noon and 4-7 pm|
|Saturday||9 am-1 pm|
|Sunday||9 am to Noon (at locations open on Sundays)|
*Southwest Family YMCA will not be offering Child Watch at this time.
