Registration Open – Special YMCA Program Starts Wednesday, March 18

The YMCA has been working in partnership with Public Health, Department of Children Youth and Families, and local school districts to find ways to support working families who need child care.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020 from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. the YMCA will offer full-day programming at most YMCA branches throughout King County, including the University YMCA, which runs Kid’s U, Hazel Wolf’s afterschool program.

The purpose is to provide a safe and nurturing place for youth while first responders and health care providers of direct services, and parents/guardians who need to work and do not have support systems readily available. 

To register for programming at University YMCA, visit: https://apm.activecommunities.com/seattleymca/Activity_Search?detailskeyword=372052 

Please note, YMCA is using a NEW registration process to allow flexibility for families by providing daily options. If you have any questions, please email registration@seattleymca.org.
