Fees and Tuition Assistance

At the South Whidbey Children’s Center, we have flexible scheduling so that families can choose the schedule that makes the most sense for them.  We offer full days, 6:30 am to 5:30 pm and half days 6:30 am to 1:00 pm.  While the majority of our families attend from 9:00 to 4:00, we open at 6:30 to accommodate early work schedules (or early risers!)

We have a minimum of 2 half days per week.  However, pending availability, you can choose, 1 whole day and 1 half day per week or two, three or five full days.  Whatever works best for you.

At South Whidbey Children’s Center, our core belief is that high quality early childhood education should be accessible to everyone in our community. That is why we are a non-profit, with over 40% of our families receiving financial aid.

We take great pride in making SWCC a safe, equitable and diverse home for early learning. Our standards and accreditation put us among the elite top 10% of early learning centers in the country and we believe that this level of care and education should be accessible to everyone in our community.

We nurture and educate the whole child, fostering deep roots for the whole person. By making SWCC work for you, your child and your family, we believe we are fostering deep roots for our community as well.

 

If you would like to learn more about arranging financial aid for your family, please call or email our Director, Kris Barker at swcc.director@whidbey.com or call 360-221-4499.

Financial aid is arranged on an individual family basis. We ask that families first apply to DSHS working connections to see if they qualify for childcare subsidies prior to applying to SWCC for financial aid. Kris will work with you directly and privately to find an arrangement that works, dependent upon current grants and funding.
