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 for the 2017-2018 School opens Monday July 17 and is on-going throughout the school year! Our 2017-2018 registration forms will be available online and at our offices as of Monday July 17. 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 provide program options at 12 Kennewick Elementary Schools. Our program operates from 6:30am-6pm.
