Afterschool Enrichment Info: Register Now for Apr. 30-Jun. 22 Session, Reserve a Spot for Next Year

Registration for the next session of afterschool enrichment classes is now open! This is the last session of the year and it runs from April 30 to June 22. Classes are Monday through Friday after school until as late as 5:45 p.m., and there are three class times on Wednesday to accommodate early release (two class times the rest of the week).

If families would like to reserve their spot next year at the Y, please fill out this reservation form and return it to the YMCA Youth Program Director Miranda Gadau (mgadau@seattleymca.org).

Also, the Y shared with us that Healthy Kids Day is this Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the University Family Y. There are a ton of fun giveaways, summer camp information/registration, and fun for the entire family. This is a free event. (Download the flyer)

Apr. 30-Jun. 22 Session Registration Information

For Enrichment Pass Families: For online registration, use the coupon code 17KIDSU100 to register. This should make your cart total $0, since you already pay a monthly fee. If the coupon code is not working for you, please fill out this registration form and turn the form in to the YMCA Youth Program Director Miranda Gadau (mgadau@seattleymca.org) or our site supervisor Maddie Shirk (mshirk@seattleymca.org).

Note: The Enrichment Pass option includes all five days and all class times (including early release on Wednesday) for $495/month ($440/month if you are a YMCA member). There is definitely cost savings with the Enrichment Pass if you need care every day.

Individual classes are $110 per session ($100 per session for YMCA members); however, Fast Break Basketball on Wednesday, Carpentry on Thursday and Martial Arts on Friday are being provided by outside vendors and are $165 per session. Also, Microsoft Club is a two-hour class and is therefore $220 per session ($200 per session for YMCA members). (All classes are onsite at Hazel Wolf, except the Microsoft classes. The YMCA has its own transportation and will bus kids signed up for those classes from school, to the offsite locations, and back by 4:45 pickup on Wednesday or 5:45 pickup on Thursday.)

Sign up as soon as possible, as some classes have limited space! If you have any trouble registering or have any questions, please contact Miranda.

Financial assistance: The YMCA strives to make programs available to all children and confidential assistance may be provided to the extent possible. To learn more and apply, visit http://ykids.seattleymca.org/financial-assistance.
