Childcare at Dry Creek Elementary School


Let the Y help you with your childcare needs this fall. With the new school year rapidly approaching, and plans still being finalized by local school districts, we know this is a difficult time for families to find the care they need. We are working in coordination with school districts to make sure your child can be safely taken care of before and after school. We will be able to provide childcare at Dry Creek Elementary School.

**PLEASE NOTE: We have limited spots available for childcare. If you are interested in childcare, please email Jeanine Thayer at or call 360-406-4388.

We are proud to offer financial assistance to those in need. If you are seeking financial assistance for childcare, please let us know and we will reach out to you and determine an affordable option. The Y will work with every family to ensure they have an affordable option for childcare. For financial assistance, please email our Childcare Director, Montesz, at
