  • Children that are not potty-trained must wear a pull-up or diaper. If trained, underwear must be worn at all times. Staff do not change diapers, but will notify parents of the child’s need for a diaper change.
     
  • Ensure your child is well fed or nursed before your reservation starts. Child watch staff will not feed children. Parents may be asked to return to feed child, if necessary, outside of child watch.

Our YMCA provides and safe and fun environment for your children. Discipline in child watch is based on the principles of positive reinforcement, reasonable expectations, logical consequences, distraction and diversion, and if necessary, supervised removal from the group for a brief time. Our goal is to provide a positive experience for all children; therefore, our policy is to get you if your child cries for more than 10 consecutive minutes.
