YMCA Childcare

Beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020 the Y will offer full-day break camp at their Coal Creek and Sammamish locations from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM. This program provides a safe and nurturing place for youth while first responders, health care providers, and parents/guardians are required to work.

The daily fee is $45 and includes full-day programming, morning and afternoon snack, lunch, and possibly swimming. Financial assistance is available. First payment is required at the time of registration. First responders and health care providers of direct services will not be charged for this program. Please send an email to registration@seattleymca.org before registering to receive your special coupon code or learn about financial assistance options.

More information and registration instructions are available on the YMCA website.

King County Emergency Child Care for Essential Workers

King County has committed $2.2 million to provide child care, free of charge, for essential workers who live or work in King County. The funding will pay for a slot at select child care providers across the county through at least June.

To apply for this free child care, families should call the Child Care Aware of Washington Family Center at 1-800-446-1114 and complete an intake with a Resource Specialist. They have Spanish speaking representatives and can provide service in any other language, free of charge.

Verification of employment and/or home address are required to complete intake.

To expedite the intake process, families can send photos of the required verification documents to subsidy@childcare.org.
