Child Watch and Youth Center


The Cordova YMCA offers its family members Child Watch at no additional cost. Parents are welcome to bring their children for a maximum of 2 hours per day. Parents MUST remain on the premises. All staff are background checked and drug screened.

How It Works

Child Watch staff will receive photo Y-membership cards from boththe parent and child at drop-off. Cards will be returned at pick-up. Members must have a current family membership to access Kids Corner or Youth Center. Children must be signed in and out by the same parent each visit. Parents with children in both rooms will need two photo Y-membership cards. No food allowed due to food allergies.

Staff – Minimum of 2 staff present at all times with your child in Kids Corner.

Child Watch & Youth Center Guidelines


  • Parents are asked not to enter Kids Corner during drop-off and pick-up unless a child needs to be changed, is crying, or to drop-off/pick-up infant carrier.
  • Since we are not a licensed daycare, Kids Corner cannot change diapers. Staff will find the parent if a child’s diaper needs to be changed.
  • Due to so many allergies, please leave snacks at home. If we are doing a special snack, we will let you know. If you are dropping off a sippycup or bottle, please label with your child’s name.

  • Please no outside toys except small stuffed animals. Electronic games are allowed in the Youth Center. YMCA is not responsible for lost or damaged items. Must be age 5 and up to play the Wii.

  • If child is not walking, an infant carrier must be provided. All children must be wearing socks or shoes.  Tennis shoes are preferred on days when there are children’s exercise classes. No strollers are permitted for space reasons.

  • We want to do our best to not spread germs, so we wipe down all toys after each day. Help us reduce sickness by allowing your child to be fever/diarrhea free for at least 24 hours before returning to Child Watch.

  • We will do everything possible to help your child adjust. If a child cries for more than 5 minutes, we will come and get the parent to try and settle them down.
