ChildWatch at the YMCA

Finding time as a parent to work out can be a challenge. The Cortland YMCA offers FREE childcare to Cortland YMCA members during select weekday hours. Your child will enjoy playing in a safe, supervised program while you swim, use the fitness center, take a class, or take advantage of any of the other great things our Y offers.

This program is for Cortland YMCA members only. Interested in joining? Start here!

New ChildWatch participants will be asked to fill out a brief health form when they arrive. Please stop by the front desk to pick up a copy. If you reserve a space for your child and then cannot make it in or no longer need childcare that day, please call to let us know so we can offer care to another family.

Please bring anything your child may need during their stay with us. This includes diapers, wipes, a drink, a snack, a change of clothes, and anything else that your child may need to have a comfortable experience in our program.

ChildWatch is Available:

Wednesday:  4:00 PM-6:00 PM

Thursday:  5:00 PM- 7:00 PM

Saturday:  9:00 AM- 11:30 AM

24-hour advance signup for our Child Watch service is recommended. Please call (607) 756-2893 to save your space.
