The short-term Child Watch is a bonus for Kroc members, designed for children 3 months to 12 years of age. This service allows members to drop their child off for up to two hours a day while they utilize the facility or participate in a Kroc Center program or activity.

Child Watch is a limited-availability, drop-in only service that is strictly first-come, first-serve.

Although the Kroc Center’s short-term Child Watch is not a licensed child-watch program and is not obligated to follow the codes set by the state of Tennessee, the staff maintains high standards of service that ensure the safety and well-being of all participants.

Parents must remain at the Kroc Center (inside or outside) for the duration of the child’s visit in the short-term Child Watch.

Child Watch is powered by KidCheck. To create an account, visit and search for the Memphis Kroc Center.

The Child Watch staff reserves the right to page a parent to pick up their child if the child becomes ill, is continuously crying for an extended period of time, is having serious disciplinary problems, is not adjusting in a positive manner, or has an accident.  Anytime a parent/guardian is paged, he/she must report to Child Watch within 10 minutes.  It is recommended that in order to avoid missing any pages, parents/guardians should not use headphones while their child is in the Child Watch. Additionally, parents/guardians are asked to keep their cell phones visible, accessible and on at all times.
