About

About SWCCC

In 1989, Clark County’s business, education and civic leaders joined Educational Service District 112 to take an extraordinary step: they launched the first of what has now become the largest community-run child care system in the United States. Today, this effort is recognized as one of the “best and brightest” examples of local, state and federal government programs addressing one of today’s toughest issues: child care.

The Consortium operates 29 centers in Clark County serving 2,000 children and 2,800 parents utilizing more than 200 employees.

Full Day Centers

Full Day Centers

Southwest Washington Child Care Consortium provides quality child care services for children in Clark County. Our licensed centers offer full-day care and are located on or near school grounds in partnership with local school districts and area businesses.

Our centers serve a variety of ages:

Daily routines are designed around the individual feeding, diapering, and sleeping schedule of each infant. Caregivers include many learning opportunities within these routines by talking with each infant, playing simple one on one games, and encouraging emerging skills throughout the day.

The room is designed so that play spaces, individual cribs, diapering area, and eating area are easily monitored by caregivers. Safety and cleanliness are top priorities.

The following centers offer infant care:

Toddlers are in constant motion! You will see them actively exploring their environment trying new ways of doing things. To encourage a toddler to learn through play by touching, seeing, hearing, and moving around, the room has specific play areas. Those areas would include a place for climbing, a quiet book area, low shelves with simple puzzles and manipulatives, and a dramatic play area for make believe play.

Caregivers spend much of their day facilitating the children’s play choices while encouraging social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and beginning language development

The daily schedule is organized around repeated routines that include, diapering, toileting, dressing, eating, and napping. It also includes free play and outside time. Caregivers utilize these routines to nurture learning and as relationship building opportunities.

The preschool room is divided into interest areas such as blocks, dramatic play, books, puzzles, manipulatives, art exploration, and science discovery. Children make choices throughout the day for play, focusing and exploring, based on their interests. They may play alone or cooperatively with friends.

The daily routine is designed to provide varied social and developmental experiences. These consistent routines include small group activities, special projects, quiet rest time, large muscle play, and meal times.

Caregivers provide consistent and safe opportunities for children to learn and grow. Learning how to develop friendships, problem solve and manage conflicts, share space and materials, and how to express their feelings appropriately, are some of the critical elements of early social learning that we develop in our program.

The kindergarten prep program is designed to give SWCCC’s four year olds the preparation and support they need as they transition from pre-school to kindergarten. A child’s social, emotional, and intellectual development is greatly enhanced when caregivers, parents and schools work together to support each child’s developmental journey. We work with the children to increase their reading and math readiness. Our kindergarten prep teachers prepare a transition summary plan that can be shared with their kindergarten teachers.

Activities, games, and projects are designed to support and enhance children’s development cognitively in literacy, math, science and creative arts. Caregivers also provide daily opportunities for children to be physically active.

The School-age room is arranged into interest and activity areas. These include a comfortable and quiet listening and reading area, table activities such as puzzles and games, art exploration, homework and study area, and building and construction.

Children are given consistent guidance in learning cooperation, conflict resolution, and developing a sense of “shared community” within the group.
