On-site child care is offered at seven district school locations as well as the Patricia Nierenberg Child Care Center. All programs are facilitated by the Learning Avenues School Age Program and Southwest Washington Child Care Consortium.
Southwest Washington Child Care Consortium
The consortium operates 26 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.
