What ages of children do we serve? We serve children ages 12 months through the time that they start kindergarten.
How many children are in our programs? Our Programs are licensed by Washington State DCYF (Department of Children, Youth and Families) for a maximum of 85 children in 6 classrooms. We currently only have 5 classrooms operating, reducing our capacity to 74.
Do we provide part time care? For regularly attending children, we provide 2-5 day schedules. We provide Drop-In Care if we have space available. Our Drop-In can take children for either half-day or full-day. For more information about this, please see our Rate & Fees page.
Do we have a sliding fee scale? We provide scholarship based on income for families who do not qualify for other subsidy programs. We ask that you apply for subsidy with DSHS, the City of Seattle or UW student funding programs first. Our scholarship fund is limited, and we want to be able to serve as many families as possible through our program. We do prioritize enrollment to subsidy families on our wait list. We will work with families regarding payment or payment plans for registration fee and tuition deposit.
What meals do we serve? We serve breakfast daily for children who arrive prior to 8:45 a.m., Children bring a lunch from home, we have milk / beverages available. We serve a hearty snack after nap time and a light snack between 4-5 pm to tide everyone over until dinner time.
Our center is nut and peanut free due to allergies. Every thing we serve is vegetarian, low fat, low sugar. All of our milk is organic. We try to serve mostly organic vegetables and fruits. We introduce new foods on a regular basis to give the children a chance to try new things.
What should children bring to preschool? A family provided lunch appropriate for the child's age, changes of clothes, outdoor clothing appropriate for the weather, and a blanket and soft comfort item, like a stuffed animal, for rest time. Unless a child is bringing something from home for a structured activity like "Show and Tell," please leave all toys from home at home.
Are donations to CLCC tax deductible? The UCUCC Child Care Programs are a 501 (c)3, and most donations are tax deductible. We recommend that you check with a tax adviser to make sure. We accept donations to our scholarship fund and to our teacher development program.
