Childcare YMCA of Port Angeles

Childcare Fall 2020 

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 the Port Angeles School District to make sure you have safe, affordable options for childcare. Our childcare program will serve 4 different elementary schools this fall: Dry Creek, Roosevelt, Jefferson, and Hamilton. We will have childcare sites available at Dry Creek and Roosevelt Elementary Schools.

November 25 Update: The Port Angeles School District has decided to transition to 100% online learning as of Monday, November 30th. Our childcare program will continue to run as normal, however, if your needs for childcare will be changing, please fill out the December/January form at your childcare site and return it to us by December 2nd at the latest.

*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.
