Can't help with transportation. For lodging, here's a few suggestions:

* The city/county of San Francisco runs Camp Mather just northwest of Yosemite. http://www.campmather.com/ http://www.campmather.com/

* The Yosemite Institute has dorm-type lodging for kids at Crane Flat in Yosemite (north of the valley).

* There's lodging at Yosemite West (near the junction of Glacier Point Road and Highway 41), and at Wawona, both mostly cabins or condos and not cheap.

* There's lodging in Camp Curry tent cabins. For winter, reserve the heated tent cabins (heated with propane and planety warm). Baths and showers are in a central showerhouse.
From Yosemite Valley there's a free bus in winter to Badger Pass Ski Area from Camp Curry. No need to buy a lift ticket or anything.
