UW Children’s Centers

University of Washington Children’s Centers (UWCC) offer year-round care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at four Seattle campus locations and are operated by Haggard Childcare Resources. Visit haggardchildcare.com to learn about their approach, staff ratios, nutrition plans, see photos, and to schedule a tour. Eligibility and priority for UWCC is detailed in APS 51.1 and outlined below along with enrollment capacity, monthly tuition rates and location details.

Wait pool

All UW Children’s Centers are fully enrolled. You may submit an application to add your name to the Children’s Center wait pool well in advance of needing child care as the average wait time for a space is two to three years. There is a wait pool fee ($35 for students, $45 for employees), which covers all four centers.

Download the UW Children's Centers Wait Pool Application (PDF) form.

Email uwcclist@uw.edu with questions about your wait pool status, adding a sibling to an existing wait pool application, or to remove yourself from the wait pool.
