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.
At this time our Child Care team is working to provide care to as many of our community members as possible. With that, we are still in the process of determining which site locations we will be at. We will let everyone know of any decisions made as soon as everything is finalized. We ask that you are patient and understanding while we work through this process. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to our Child Care Team.
CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION
Ensuring children are safe from abuse and able to learn, grow and thrive is the highest priority of the YMCA. We are committed to creating programs that protect children from abuse, but we are also committed to providing our families and community with information to keep kids safe everywhere.

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.
- 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.
