In partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation we have started offering a limited number of in person programs that require registration for contact tracing. All programs are following COVID protocols according to King County Public Health. Programming will slowly increase when it is safe to do so.
What we know now is:
Registration for Fall 2022 preschool will open February 8, 2022. Registration for Fall before and after school programs will open May 10, 2022.
Licensed summer day camps will run and follow social distancing guidelines. Activity camps will also run at various sites around the city. Registration open April 19, 2022.
For questions or information on refunds, please contact your local recreation facility.

We recognize that our recreation instructors and program staff are some of the most talented, dedicated, and devoted professionals in the field, so the actions forced by this pandemic have been extremely difficult. Our staffing model is primarily dependent on revenue produced by programs and services delivered by staff and instructors to the community.
As a result, all instructors and many of our other employees working in recreation-based programming were laid off. All employees who have been laid off can apply for unemployment benefits through the Washington State Employment Security Department.
The Washington State Employment Security Department is responsible for determining who is eligible for unemployment benefits. Traditionally, Independent Contractors are not eligible for unemployment benefits, however some provisions were made during this crisis and more information can be found here.
Please email Sonia Flores at [email protected] and she will put you in contact with the department that best fits your needs.
