Child Watch

GWC Sliders Family 1200x4003

Child Watch and the Zone are services for facility members that allow them to pursue their own health and well being, knowing that their children are safe, secure and cared for in a positive environment.

We offer child care as a FREE service to our Y Family Members.

Family Member parents are welcome to bring their children (6wks-12yrs) to the Nursery/Toddlers (6wks-3yrs), Kids Gym (fully potty trained 3-7yrs), or The Zone (8-12yrs) while they work out or attend a group exercise class. Notably, Y Family Members receive two hours per child per day in the Nursery and Toddler or three hours per child per day in either the Kids Gym or The Zone. The hours of operation for these Child Watch areas are as follows:

Nursery, Toddler & Kids Gym

Monday-Friday: 8am-1pm & 4pm-8pm
Monday-Friday: 8am-8pm (for HISD holidays)
Saturday: 8am-12:30pm
Sunday: CLOSED

The Zone (8yrs-12yrs)

Monday-Friday: 4pm-8pm
Monday-Friday: 8am-8pm (for HISD holidays)
Saturday: 8am-12:30pm
Sunday: CLOSED


Note: While working out in the facility, other programs such as children’s swim lessons, martial arts, dance classes, and youth sports leagues/classes do not fall under our Child Watch guidelines. We are; however, able to offer the use of off-site hours for Y Family Members on Tuesdays and Thursdays during Child Watch hours for a nominal fee. These hours should be pre-purchased for our leadership to secure adequate staff to care for your child.

Note: No peanut or tree nut products are permitted in Child Watch areas or programs.
