Coronavirus COVID-19–Update

WSU Children’s Center completed their reopening plan in late May and began vetting the plan with various university entities. On July 9, the President’s Cabinet approved the plan for reopening.

The Center is resuming child care for summer enrolled families starting July 16, 2020.  All these summer enrolled families have been contacted.  Families who had previously registered to begin or continue enrollment at the beginning of fall semester will be contacted during the week of July 20 to update plans/confirm start dates.

We continue to take applications for enrollment; enrollment capacity may need to temporarily decrease to follow COVID guidance from health officials.  See Waitlist FAQ page for enrollment information.

Staff:Child Ratios

The Washington State Department of Early Learning minimum staff:child ratios are:

Age Group Ratio
Infant (6 weeks – 11 months) 1:4
Toddler (12 – 29 months) 1:7
Preschool (30 months – 5 years) 1:10
School Age (kindergarten – 5th grade) 1:15

 

WSUCC provides staff:child ratios to meet the needs of each classroom. Our classrooms generally have more teachers than the state minimum requirements.
