Priority is given to siblings and families on child care subsidy programs.

If you are not on our waitlist, please see below. We encourage you to consider being added to our waitlist, as we often have changes as families situations change.

To be added to our waitlist click on the blue banner below. You will be asked to create an account with your information and your child's information.

Tips and Tricks:

How to whitelist an email: If you want to stay apprised of your place on the waitlist it is a good idea to add a rule to whitelist emails from our programs. More info on that here: www.whitelist.guide/gmail/ (You can choose your own email service from the page for instruction specific to your needs.) Email addresses to add include: waitlist@childlearning.org, A_D@childlearning.org, director@childlearning.org , office@childlearning.org .

Our mission is to provide care for all families regardless of their ability to afford quality care, priority enrollment will be given to low income families based on space availability. Please let us know if you qualify for DSHS, City of Seattle Child Care Assistance, as that will move you to the top of the list. We ask that email to check your status on the wait list annually. If we do not hear from you after 12 months, we will assume you no longer need care and your name will be removed from the list. As your name comes to the top of the list, we will call and schedule a tour at that time. It is hard to predict when a space will open, it could be days, a few months or a year or more.
