Rules For Child Watch Rooms

  1. You must have a HRYMCA Household Membership to use Child Watch. Child watch is not available to any guests or nationwide members.
  2. Children can only be dropped off and picked up by the adult(s) on their household membership.
  3. Child Watch may be used up to 90 minutes per adult, per day. Child Watch may be used up to five times per week, per adult.
  4. Two adult household members may use Child Watch  twice in one day. However, there must be a minimum of a two hour break between visits and each visit the child must be accompanied by a different adult.
  5. A visit begins when one child is signed in and ends when the child is signed out of Child Watch, even if the full 90 minutes have not been used.
  6. Adults must stay in the building while their child is in Child Watch.
  7. Adults may stay longer on the first visit to help their child acclimate to Child Watch. At other times, adults are asked not to stay in Child Watch to play with their children.
  8. For the safety and security of your belongings, please refrain from bringing toys/games from home into Child Watch.

Child Watch Policies and Procedures

In addition to the general health and safety guidelines, we ask that you do not utilize child watch if your child is exhibiting any covid symptoms.


Due to current health and safety regulations, children are not permitted to bring a snack to Child Watch.  They may bring a water bottle.

Additional Health Policies

We care about the health and safety of all the children in our programs, and our staff. Please adhere to the following policies.

A child may not attend Child Watch if he/she has:

  • Been absent from school that day due to illness
  • Discolored discharge from the nose
  • A persistent cough
  • Had a temperature over 100°F within the last 24 hours
  • Had diarrhea or vomiting within the last 24 hours
  • Has active lice that have not been treated

If any of these symptoms are present, or any symptoms that cause our staff concern, we reserve the right to prevent you from using Child Watch.


YMCA staff is not allowed to change diapers, so please have your children freshly diapered before drop-off. If there is a need for a diaper change, we will come to get you.

Winter Weather Policy

The safety of our members and staff is the most important factor in determining weather-related closings.  If conditions warrant, the CEO may decide to close the YMCA early, delay opening, cancel programs or classes, or close the facility entirely on severe weather days.

Please check our website and Facebook page for updated status reports on delays, closings and cancelations due to weather or emergency conditions.  In the event the Y is closed on a severe weather day, local television postings will also be made.

Teen Center

The HRYMCA Teen Center offers a welcoming space for youth ages 9 years and older to play, work out, do homework or hang out with friends. The Teen Center is staffed with energetic and engaging staff who are certified in First Aid and CPR. The Teen Center is intended to be a safe, fun, and inviting space where youth can socialize, learn new skills, and spend their free time in productive and healthy ways.

Teen Center Policies

The Teen Center is open to members and their guests. Guests may purchase a day pass to access the Teen Center.  All youth must have a waiver signed by a guardian to visit the Teen Center.  The waiver can be emailed to Ben May, Youth and Teens Programs Director, or given to a Teen Center staff.

Youth 9 years old and up may sign themselves in and out of the Teen Center. Parents do not need to be present during this time. Parents should note that while in the Teen Center there is adult supervision, but outside of the Teen Center, youth 9 years and up have full access to most areas of the Y. They may enter and exit the building at their own will. We do expect everyone to uphold the Y core values of Caring, Respect, Responsibility and Honesty at all times while in the YMCA.

Youth should refrain from visiting the Y if they have any of the following symptoms: cough, fever, sore throat, difficulty breathing, gastrointestinal symptoms, loss of taste or smell, fatigue or headache.

If any of these symptoms are present, or any symptoms that cause our staff concern, we reserve the right to prevent youth from using the Teen Center.
