Do you have a sliding fee scale? We do not have a sliding scale for tuition. We do, however, provide scholarships 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 you serve? We will provide a morning snack/light breakfast, a snack in the afternoon, and an evening snack. We ask families to provide a lunch daily.
Do you accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies? Snacks and meals provided by the programs are vegetarian and have dairy free options. We provide organic whole milk at meals and have oat and soy milk available for children who cannot have dairy. We are a a tree and peanut free program. Please do not send your child with anything containing nuts/peanuts. If your child has additional allergies you can work with the admin team to see if reasonable substitutions can be made.
What should children bring to preschool? Children should come with a lunch appropriate for the child's age/development, a water bottle, and changes of clothes. If your child would like they may also bring a blanket and/or soft toy for rest time. Please leave other toys at home.
Are donations 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.
