Ages 6 Weeks Old  – 12 years

Make sure your child is registered with a card and photo taken at the front desk before using the Child Watch service. This card is part of our new security measures to ensure children remain safely in our care until a designated parent or guardian returns to take them home.

The Bloomsburg Area YMCA provides childcare services to our members while they workout at NO CHARGE! We provide a safe, healthy and fun environment for your child to play with age appropriate toys and games, and to be creative with arts and crafts.  Child Watch is limited to 1 hour and 30 minutes at a time per family.

Child Watch hours:

Monday: 8:30-11:30am & 4:15pm – 7:45pm
Tuesday: 8:30-11:30am  & 4:15pm – 7:45pm
Wednesday: 8:30-11:30am & 4:15pm – 7:45pm
Thursday: 8:30-11:30am & 4:15pm – 7:45pm
Friday: 8:30-11:30am
Saturday: 8:00-11:30am 

Signing Up & Signing In

It is your responsibility to call the YMCA to sign up your child(ren) for PM Child Watch. We must know: your child’s name, his/her age, and what time slot you would like to have your child in.

Every parent or guardian using our Child Watch service is required to sign in and sign out their child(ren) on the log sheets found in the Child Watch area. This helps up to keep track of who is there and who isn’t especially in the case of an emergency.
