Admissions Process

At South Whidbey Children’s Center, we pride ourselves on our high-quality education in a down-home, rural setting. As such, you won’t find quite the competitive admissions process for our Center that you might find in more urban environments.

We admit families to SWCC on a first-come, first-served basis, as long as we have the capacity to care for your child’s needs. Our first step towards admission is to schedule a tour.  We want to make sure that our Center and Preschool are a good match for your family and needs.

To request a tour please contact us at (360) 221-4499 or at

A note about capacity:

We seek to maintain the highest standards in early childhood development and care, which involves keeping low teacher-student ratios. As a result, we generally have a waiting list.

If you need help paying for child care, apply for Working Connections Child Care via WA DCYF.
