SCHOOL-AGE CHILD CARE

The YMCA of the Greater Tri-Cities is proud to offer the School-Age Child Care (before & after school) program, to youth in our community in kindergarten through 5th grade. All of our child care sites are licensed by the State of Washington and accept state subsidy (DSHS) payments.

Enrollment

Enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year opens Monday July 16 and is on-going throughout the school year! Our 2018-2019 registration forms will be available online and at our offices as of Monday July 16. If you have questions or would like to visit any of our sites, please call the YMCA at 374-1908 or email your question to childcare@ymcatricities.org and we’ll get right back to you.
We currently provide program options at 14 Kennewick Elementary Schools. Our program operates from 6:30am-6pm. YMCA School-Age Child Care programs are primarily held in gymnasiums/cafeterias or combination of both throughout the Kennewick School District. We are happy to announce two new additions in Fall 2018: Amon Creek and Fuerza Elementary.

KidKiosk

The State of Washington has mandated that licensed Child Care providers track attendance electronically.  Our YMCA's school age child care, preschool and camp sites are now using KidKiosk to keep attendance for electronic Sign in/out.  With KidKiosk you will be able to sign your child in/out of the YMCA program. You will also be able to add/remove Drop off and Pick up Authorizations through KidKiosk.

KidKiosk PIN

  • All authorized individuals will be issued a 4-digit PIN. This PIN is specifically linked to each person’s email. ALL authorized persons dropping off AND picking up will be responsible for using their own PIN and electronic signature to check a child IN and OUT. This PIN may not be shared.

KidKiosk Parent Portal

  • Only the primary parent/guardian’s email is authorized to log into KidKiosk’s Parent Portal using their email as the username and the 4-digit PIN as the password. To access the Parent Portal, go to KidKiosk.com then select the “Parent Tab” to log in.
  • The Parent Portal allows the parent to add/change check in and out authorizations. Any additional people that are needing to be authorized to check in/out a child will have to be added by the primary parent/guardian in KidKiosk.

PARENT/GUARDIAN ROLES

What does it mean to be the primary parent/guardian?

  • The primary parent/guardian will have access to WebTime and KidKiosk. Only the primary parent/guardian’s email will be used to log into and access these programs.
  • The primary and secondary parent/guardian will receive notification emails when another authorized person checks a child in and out.
  • If parents are co-parenting, we recommend using a primary email that both parents have access to. Please keep in mind that the secondary parent/guardian must have their own email to receive their own personalized PIN.

What does it mean to be the secondary parent/guardian?

  • The secondary parent/guardian will be able to access WebTime BUT ONLY if the primary parent share’s their account log in information.
  • The secondary parent/guardian will be added to KidKiosk and receive their personalized PIN via the email they provided during registration.
  • The secondary parent/guardian will receive notification emails when another authorized person checks a child in and out.

Financial Assistance/DSHS

If you cannot afford the full cost of a program, please ask for a confidential scholarship application. Financial assistance, to the extent possible, is available to those in need.

DSHS Subsidies: Full time DSHS subsidies are accepted. DSHS approval, completed camp registration packet, including Camp Attendance Agreement are required for registration and participation.
