The South Whidbey Children's Center provides developmentally appropriate, progressive, curriculum- based early learning and childcare for children twelve months to twelve years.

We believe that children are competent and curious learners and we meet them where they are to provide active learning opportunities.

Our low teacher-child ratio encourages children to develop trusting relationships with adults and allows teachers to facilitate children's social-emotional development. Children have access to a variety of materials with which they acquire meaningful knowledge and develop an understanding of the natural world around them.

Rates:  visit the website for more information www.swchildrenscenter.com

Fees based on a 12-month contract. We have an annual registration fee of $50.00 per child. A $200 “holding fee” will be charged for children not attending for one month’s time or more who would like to return to our program. Tuition will be increased 3-6% annually for a cost of living adjustment. *We have a 2 half day minimum at our Center and no minimum for our school age program.

New families, holding a spot for more than 3 weeks will pay a $250.00 non- refundable deposit when pre-registering.

We accept DSHS and have scholarship dollars from United Way and the Arise Women’s Charitable Trust. Scholarships determined based on individual family circumstances.
