• Northwest Elementary Child Development Center

    PfISD, in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Williamson County, is opening registration of its Northwest Child Development Center for the 2024-2025 school year. We offer discounted childcare for full-time district staff members only. There is limited availability in the program, with admission provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

    Childcare is provided from ages 8 weeks to a max of 4 years. We are unable to provide care for students who have turned 4 years old or older. Care will be provided based on the 187-day teacher calendar, from 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. each Monday through Friday at Northwest Leadership Academy, 14014 Thermal Dr., Austin. Discounted rates are listed below. Rates include breakfast, lunch and snack.

    Payments will be deducted from the employee’s paycheck on the 25th of each month from Sept. 25, 2024, through June 25, 2025. Proration will occur based on the student’s start date.

    To apply, download and complete the YMCA Childcare Application as well as the Payroll Deduction Authorization and return it to Natasha Drumgoole at natasha.drumgoole@pfisd.net.  Before their official start date on August 2, 2024, a copy of the student’s most updated shot records must also be provided.


    *Rates include breakfast, lunch and snack. 

    8 weeks – 18 months = $790/month

    18-months – max 3 years = $715/month

    3 years – max 4 years = $690/month
