Childcare Jefferson County


Everyday at the Y we create outstanding childcare programming in a nurturing learning community where the values of honesty, respect, responsibility and caring are learned and developed. Childcare is designed to be flexible enough for working families, with classes that empower kids to make healthy choices and try new skills. This program is currently available at Salish Coast Elementary School. 


Let the Y help you with your childcare needs this fall. With the new school year rapidly approaching, we know this is a difficult time for families to find the care they need. We are working in coordination with local school districts to make sure you have safe, affordable options for childcare. Childcare will be available at Salish Coast Elementary School starting on Friday, September 11, and other possible locations will be confirmed shortly.
