Child Watch

Child Watch at our branch facilities while you work out

We're the Scott County FAMILY Y for a reason! A strong community is built through the most important relationships, and there isn't anything more important than the bond between parent and child. Therefore, we work to provide support to parents as they pursue Healthy Living.

Child Watch is a high-quality service available to all of our family memberships for children ages 6 weeks to 7 years at our Bettendorf, Davenport, North & West branches and 6 weeks to 12 years at our Utica Ridge branch. The cost of membership covers the Child Watch service. We'd tell you that Child Watch is FREE, but we don't want anyone to think it's a low-quality program. In fact, we take great concern to offern only trained staff with specific ratios and quidelines for service.
