Child care

Onsite child care is offered at several district school locations. All programs are facilitated by the Learning Avenues School Age Program, Southwest Washington Child Care Consortium and Educational Service District 112.

Children at childcare Southwest Washington Child Care Consortium

The consortium operates centers in two counties. SWCCC child care rates are at or below the average for the area, resulting in a quality program that remains very affordable. SWCCC uses research-based Creative Curriculum in all of its child care programs. Developmentally appropriate versions of the curriculum are used for infant and toddler, preschool and school-age care.
