In our Child Watch programs babies develop trust and security; preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world; and school-age children make friends, learn new skills, and do homework.
Child Watch is a safe, engaging environment for our youngest members, from 6 weeks to 6 years old. Loving care is provided by trained YMCA staff while parents work out. Our streamlined Child Watch account allows you to easily use any location in Pierce and Kitsap Counties.

The Youth Center is for ages 8-12 (and ages 6-7 with a parent). It is a safe place for youth to play together, do arts and crafts, and engage in recreational games. This is a drop-in zone and youth may come and go as they please, but all parents/guardians must stay in the building. A staff member is present while the Youth Center is open.
