Seattle parents: are you trying to find something for your kids to do on President’s Day or during a Mid-Winter break? School’s out, but there are lots of options out there for fun, learning, and supervision. Check out the childcare and camps available to you and yours:

$8.50/hour and $4.50/second sibling

Stroum Jewish Community Center
The SJCC is hosting a Mid-Winter Break camp Mon-Fri, Feb 21-25, 9:30 am to 3:00 pm with morning/afternoon care available for $5 per session. The camp is $55 per day, so parents can use it solely for President’s Day if needed, but there’s a discount if your child attends all 5 days. The camp is for pre-K to 5th grade students.
Each day of camp has its own theme; Monday (President’s Day) is Gym and Swim day, so don’t forget to pack your kids’ swim suits.
Note: Parents are asked to pack vegetarian/dairy lunches for their children.
