We are proud participants in Washington State's Department of Early Learning "Early Achiever's" program. We are one of the 121 centers out of 2167 in Washington State to have received a 3 or higher out of 5 rating. We are always striving to improve our program for your child. We have been noticed for our quality work with families.Please join us in supporting the UCUCC Congregation in their mission of social justice as they partner with "the Ave. Foundation" in providing space for their encampment.
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.
UCUCC Child Care Programs provides a place where all families are welcomed and supported.
An important part of our Philosophy is an anti-bias approach to learning. It is our goal to consistently maintain an environment that provides learning materials and offers activities which reflect all aspects of diversity. We particularly strive to reflect the diversity present in the families we serve. Examples of how a classroom environment may include representations of diversity are as the follows:
When children see themselves and their culture reflected in their environment, and when children are supported in their choice of play, they learn to value themselves for who they are. This instilled sense of pride contributes to a higher self-esteem throughout adulthood.
Child Learning and Care Center is currently accepting families for our wait list. Please contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 206-524-3400, with your name, phone number, email address or phone number 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.
We typically schedule tours during the morning activity
times, between 9am and 11:30 am Wednesday - Friday. 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 partial scholarship for lower income qualified families.
We realize that choosing a child care is an important decision. We
require all 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.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Child Learning and Care Center is open Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m.
