Child Watch


Our caring, loving, and devoted staff are committed to providing quality care. We offer a safe, nurturing environment with a focus on fun and development.  Child Watch is available to both members and non-members visiting our facility.

Parents must be participating in Y activities/programs and must stay in the building.  The fee is only $3.00 per family per visit for up to 2 hours. Non-members utilizing Child Watch will pay $5 per family.  Come and let your children play and interact with other children in the Child Watch Room while you enjoy a class, a swim or any of the other opportunities the Mattoon Area Family YMCA has to offer!  Child Watch punch cards are also available at the front desk for your convenience.

We meet your child’s needs by giving them positive attention and encouraging their social development.  The children we serve range in age from 6 weeks to 7 years old.
