YMCA Child Care Programs For First Responders

Serving The Needs Of Our Community

In alignment with Governor Inslee's mandate, YMCA Child Care is providing all-day care to the families of our health care providers and first responders during these unprecedented times. We are currently serving children at 12 school sites in seven districts in Pierce and Kitsap Counties. First responders and other essential workforce receive care at no cost. All other families are being offered a discounted rate. 

Our priority during this time is providing care for children of health care providers and first responders. We understand that many other families need care for their children while schools are closed and we will do our best to accommodate them at sites where there is additional space.

Families can reach out to YMCA Child Care to learn more and register.
