Tumwater School District Y Care – South Sound YMCA

Tumwater School District Y Care

Before and After School Childcare

As you may have heard by now, Tumwater School District will be implementing a 4-day, in-person model starting May 3, 2021. Under these updates, TSD will have kids at school in person 4 days a week and work remotely on Wednesdays. As always, we have the utmost confidence in our local school district partners to make decisions in line with what’s best for public health and fully support this transition. In light of this schedule change, we wanted to share an update on YMCA childcare programming. Effective May 3rd, the following changes will go into effect:

FULL TIME $495/month $470/month*
AFTER SCHOOL CARE $340/month $325/month*
BEFORE SCHOOL CARE $235/month $220/month*
