Child Watch

Time - especially for parents with small children - always seems limited. Between work, social and professional obligations, activities for kids and the family and more, it might feel selfish or impossible to prioritize time to work out to relieve stress and improve your fitness, attend a group exercise class for fun and camaraderie with friends.

The Pittsburg Family YMCA, to make it easier for parents to find time to improve their wellness - spirit, mind, and body - offers:

Child Watch for children 2 - 12 years old

Monday - Friday from 8:00AM-10:00AM 

Monday-Thursday from 5:30PM - 8:30PM

This service is FREE to members!

Afterschool Program

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We understand the difficulties working families face in raising children, so we are here to provide help with homework and a healthy snack so that time at home is truly family time.

When your child spends time with the Y after school, they are receiving opportunities to continue learning, growing and thriving.
