Did you know the Attleboro Norton YMCA Downtown Branch offers a free benefit to Attleboro Norton Y (Family and Single-Parent Family) Members?

Our Child Watch program provides a safe and supportive environment for children, ages 2 months to 12 years old, to build healthy, trusting relationships with other children and adults. Meanwhile, parent family members are able to reset, recharge, and connect with all the Y has to offer! Whether it’s your first time dropping off, or your 30th, we are here to support you and to help your child transition int our Child Watch room — a large, bright open play space conveniently located on our second floor (with elevator access). We want everyone to be successful!

Here are a few helpful hints:

  • Please check in each member (you and your child) every time you visit the Y
  • Children can bring a snack and drink (please refrain from peanuts, green beans and tree nuts)
  • No toys from home — we have plenty in our Child Watch room
  • If your child is feeling unwell or is unable to go to school due to illness, please keep them home.
  • Child Watch is only free to Family or Single-Parent Family members of the Attleboro Norton YMCA.
  • Non-Members, youth members, and members of other YMCAs may attend with a $5 fee.
