Learn, Grow, and Thrive with the Y

The Y is proud to partner with the Seattle School District to provide high-quality, active learning opportunities designed to engage and expand young minds. Through our Before and After-School Enrichment (BASE) program, we provide a safe, caring, and fun environment where kids can participate in sports, arts, STEM, and other hands-on learning activities. 

Registration

BASE is a school year program that typically runs from September through June. Programs are flexible to meet your needs! Families may choose from programs before school, after school, or both and from 1 to 5 days per week.

2022-23 School Year

Online registration is closed, but you may sign up for BASE programs through our registration team. Please fill out this interest form and expect a minimum 72 hour response time. Many of our programs are full or have limited capacity. Typically, it will take 5-7 business days to fully complete your registration and required paperwork to begin care.

Non-School Days & Breaks

We offer full-day programs from 7:30 am - 5:30 pm during winter, mid-winter, and spring breaks and some other non-school days for an additional fee at Arbor Heights Elementary, Bailey Gatzert Elementary, Boren K8, Concord Elementary, Fairmount Park Elementary, Magnuson Park, and Thurgood Marshall Elementary. These programs are just for families currently enrolled in BASE. Register here.

 

2022-23 School Year Fees per Week

Fees are reflective of the hours that kids are in BASE, may vary by district and school, and may be slightly higher for the options that include early release Wednesdays.
