Enrollment

Child Learning and Care Center is currently 100% full.  If we get an unexpected opening, we will call or email families in the order they were added to the list.  Priority is given to siblings and families on child care subsidy programs.

If you are not on our waitlist, please see below.  We encourage you to consider being added to our waitlist, as we often have changes during the summer.

Child Learning and Care Center is currently accepting families for our waitlist.  Please email us at waitlist@childlearning.org, with your name, 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 (Tues. & Thurs.), 3 (Mon., Wed., & Fri.) or 5 days per week

Our mission is to provide care for all families regardless of their ability to afford quality care, priority enrollment will be given to low income families based on space availability. 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.

  • We do not charge a fee to be on our waitlist. 
  • We only schedule tours when we have space available.
  • 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. 

To help us process your waitlist request in a more timely manner, please make sure to provide your first name, your child's first name and date of birth, an email address or phone number that we may contact you at.  We also need to know if you need care 5 days, 3 days (Mon., Wed., Fri.) or 2 days (Tues., Thurs.) per week.

We look forward to hearing from you.
