A brief description of the child care program, policy, or practice:

The Parent-Child Center is a childcare facility & instructional lab located on the beautiful Shoreline Community College campus. Our facility has 5 classrooms and a large outdoor play area. Children's classroom experiences are enriched by access to the college and its activities. Our primary purpose is to provide high quality care for the children of students, state employees, and community members. We are licensed by the State of Washington to serve 76 children.

Program Goals/Philosophy

Our primary goal is to facilitate the growth of strong, nurturing families and healthy, thriving children. We believe children are motivated to learn, and parents and teachers can work together to facilitate this process. We support parents by providing Parent Education classes and incorporating parents into classroom activities. We create an environment where parents and children feel safe, nurtured, and respected.

Parents are required to enroll in a 1 credit online Parent Education course once per year while their child is enrolled. The Center also serves as an instructional laboratory where community college students can do observations and internships.
