Child Watch is open for Bedford Y members and Nationwide members only (child must be an active member). The hours will be limited-see below for hours. Space is limited to 8 children and filled on a first come first serve basis. The 90-minute facility limit will be maintained. The Y staff will take your child’s temperature and ask questions from the Health Status Questionnaire. If any questions are answered “yes”, your child may not stay in Child Watch for his/her health and that of the other children.
It is our sincere desire to provide quality care for your children while you are participating in various Y services and programs. For safety and well-being of all children and staff, the following health and wellness policies will be enforced.
Children may not participate in the Y Nursery program if one or more of the following conditions exist:
-A fever higher than 100.3 degrees. Child must be fever free for at least 24 hours without fever reducing medication before they can return.
-If “YES” is answered to any of our health screening questions.
-Continuous and/or colored nasal drainage. A current note from a physician can be provided if drainage is caused by an allergy.
-Vomiting within a 24-hour period
-Communicable diseases (eye discharge, pink eye, head lice, skin rash, chicken pox, whooping cough, cold sores, etc.)
Your child will require 24-hour exclusion from the nursery if any of the above-mentioned conditions exists. If your child is not contagious, but presents any of the above-mentioned conditions, we will gladly accept a doctor’s note.
The nursery is intended to be a non-structured drop-in child care service for the convenience of YMCA members while exercising at our YMCA.
