LCC's Early Learning Center (ELC) provides state licensed childcare for children ages four weeks to kindergarten, in an environment where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace. Services are available to community members, students, and LCC employees.
The Early Learning Center participates in the Washington State Early Achievers quality rating and improvement system. Teachers are trained in Early Childhood Education.
The mission of the Early Learning Center is to provide individualized education options designed to strengthen the family unit. We offer safe, quality on-campus child care and preschool learning opportunities for the children of LCC students, employees, and community members, in an atmosphere that invites adults and children to discover, explore, and celebrate the marvelous beings they are.
The Early Learning Center program requires a minimum of 3 days per week, 4 hours per day enrollment for each quarter.
Rates are calculated on a per-day quarterly basis and divided into three (3) equal payments. Proof of payment is required before bringing child to center on the first day of service, and all payments thereafter are due by the first day of each month.
