YMCA Childwatch & Parent’s Night Out

Childwatch

In light of the current COVID-19 situation and the recent community spread concerns in Omaha, and with the safety of our members and staff in mind,effective Monday, March 16th, all Group Exercise fitness classes, and all Childwatch services are temporarily suspending operations. All branch facilities will continue to be open our regular hours for the time being. We will continue to monitor this situation closely, and will update members and guests as the situation progresses. 

We appreciate your understanding and support.

We offer YMCA Childwatch because we understand parenting is a busy, full-time job. With our free drop-in childcare, parents can make use of the Y and make time to take care of themselves. Your child can explore, play and make new friends all while you’re getting your workout in. It’s a win-win. Come tour our childwatch today!

Parents’ Night Out

The YMCA of Greater Omaha is committed to serving families at all times. Along with daycare, we also offer childcare services on weekend nights, so parents can enjoy the occasional night out while their children are in safe hands. Kids can enjoy organized activities that will give them a place to shine and have fun.

Parents’ Night Out is FREE to YMCA of Greater Omaha members but space is limited. Please register early and plan your night out!
