    Child Care Options at Seattle Public Schools

    Seattle Public Schools (SPS) is partnering with the City of Seattle and community partners to provide full-day child care in nearly 50 elementary and K8 schools while buildings are closed for COVID-19. Enrollment for child care is made through each individual provider. Please see the list of school sites with contact information below.

    Child care sites will follow the guidelines for health and safety of the Washington Department of Children Youth and Families, such as health screening at entry, excluding caregivers and children who are showing symptoms of COVID-19, social distancing, hygiene practices and cleaning and disinfecting procedures.

    Child care providers will have limited capacity to minimize the risks of spreading coronavirus.  SPS has asked our providers to prioritize students furthest from educational justice, and families facing food and housing insecurity, families of essential workers and SPS educators.

    SPS is supporting providers' efforts to assist students in accessing remote learning while in child care. Supports include free internet access and trainings for staff on using SPS' learning platforms. When you sign up with a provider, please ask how families and the program can collaborate to support student learning during the day.

    This webpage is updated as new sites open and as spaces become available. Each child care provider manages their own enrollment. Please contact them directly.
