Matt Ross Community Center Child Watch

Matt Ross Community Center offers supervised care for children ages six months to ten years, while their parents use the facility.

Trained staff will engage children with books, toys, movies, games, and active play. Your child will learn, play, and socialize with other kids. Occasionally, child watch participants visit the explorer room.


A name tag system facilitates checkin and checkout of the child watch room. Adults may be required to show photo identification to check children in and out. Only the adult who checks the children in will be allowed to check them out.


Child watch is $2 per child. Punch passes that enable 30 stays are available for $45.


Child watch is located in the lobby of Matt Ross Community Center, across from the front desk.
