UCUCC Child Care Programs provides a place where all families are welcomed and supported. To learn more about us or schedule a visit please contact us at (206) 524-3400.
Child Learning and Care Center is accredited with the National Association of Child Care Professionals (NAC).
We typically schedule tours during the morning activity times, between 9am and 11:30 am daily. Tours are scheduled in advance to respect planned classroom activities. We accept families with City of Seattle, University of Washington, and DSHS voucher programs. We also offer limited private scholarship funds for qualified families.We realize that choosing a child care is an important decision. We require families to tour our center and visit our classrooms prior to enrollment. Transition visits help a child become familiar with the staff and the routine in their classroom.
In 1969 University Congregational United Church of Christ undertook an outreach program to provide quality child care, emphasizing economic, social, and ethnic diversity with a commitment to serving low income and single-parent families. In 1999, UCUCC Child Care Programs became a separately incorporated 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and Board membership was expanded to include parents and community members.
Child Learning and Care Center is currently accepting families for our wait list for our classrooms. Please contact us by email, with your name, phone number, email address that we are able to leave a message at, your child's first name and date of birth. We also need to know if you need care 2, 3 or 5 days per week. Our mission is to provide care for all families regardless of their ability to afford quality care, priority will be given to low income families. Please let us know if you qualify for DSHS, City of Seattle Child Care Assistance, or UW Student Subsidy Program. If you do we will add your name to the top of the list. We ask that you call or email to check your status on the wait list annually. If we do not hear from you after 12 months, we will assume you no longer need care and your name will be removed from the list. As your name comes to the top of the list, we will call and schedule a tour at that time. It is hard to predict when a space will open, it could be just a few months or a year or more. Please call us with this information if you do not have email access. We look forward to hearing from you.
