"The reason my family joined the Meriden YMCA was because we were looking for a family oriented place, with safe nurturing child care while my husband and I worked out. The child care staff were moms so they understood how I felt letting someone else care for my baby. My boys loved playing with their friends in Child Watch and I always felt comfortable with them being there. My boys have grown up at the Y and still like to visit child Watch. We have met the nicest families at the Y and felt welcome from the very first day."
