CLOSURE UPDATE: Per mandate from Governor Polis, and because it is the right thing to do, our facilities are closed. Check here for COVID-19 updates. We are running emergency childcare only for families who have no other choice.


For Children 6 Weeks to 10 Years

Child Watch is free for up to two hours and is included with your Y Family or Single Adult Family Membership. Other members and program participants can utilize Child Watch for a minimal fee while utilizing the facility (when space is available). Our trained and caring staff provide a safe, encouraging environment for your child while you work out. Playing, reading stories, art and crafts and other activities provide variety and fun.
