Child Care Options

Central Kitsap School District offers child care for ages 6 weeks to 3 years; preschool for children ages 3-5; and before- and after-school child care for students in grades K-6. Most of our elementary schools offer before- and after-school child care at their school sites. (We do not offer before- and after-school care at John D. "Bud" Hawk Elementary at Jackson Park.)

We currently contract with Pierce & Kitsap County YMCA, Martha & Mary KIDS, and the Knowledge Learning Corporation's Champions Program to provide these services.
