At the Y you won't have to worry about childcare while you workout. We have that covered. With your Membership at the Y, you are entitled to FREE Nursery (ages 6 weeks to 12 years) services while you are at the Y participating in our programs. Our Child Watch staff are more than capable of giving your child the attention they need, providing a safe and fun atmosphere for your child with age-appropriate toys, games and activities, and making them feel right at home, while you are being active and staying healthy. They will love it so much, it will be tough getting them to leave when you are finished!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Child Watch currently includes:

  • A 60 minute limit per member a day
  • Day of reservations by calling in to the Y
  • A controlled, limited ratio to ensure quality and safety for members who have an Athens-McMinn Family YMCA Membership
  • Parents are required to sign the child in/out and to fill out an information form to be kept on file. You must call to reserve your spot the day of care at (423) 745-4904.

Mondays through Fridays:

  • 8am to 11am
  • 4pm to 8pm
