Watch your child learn, play, and grow.

Located on the Highline Community College campus, Children’s Home Society of Washington’s Early Learning Center offers preschool, Early Head Start, Head Start and Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) programs. Children receive high-quality early learning in the areas of social and emotional development, cognitive and language skills, as well as creative arts, music, and exposure to a variety of cultures and languages. Trained professionals work individually and in group settings with your child to help them meet their developmental milestones and prepare them for success in school, and life.

The parent is recognized as the child's primary teacher, so we strive to keep parents involved in their child's development while encouraging parent/child interactions. On-site parent discussion rooms are available where educators and parents meet regularly to discuss the progress and needs of the child. 

The center serves the surrounding community and is also available for the children of students, staff, and faculty at Highline Community College, and is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. 

Early Head Start (4 weeks – 3 years old), Head Start & ECEAP (3-5 year olds), and preschool (3-5 year olds) programs are available. Preschool rates are $775/month for full-day. Subsidies accepted.

Qualifications based on age and income.

Enrollment is ongoing, though classrooms are expected to be full by the first day of school in the fall for students. For more information or schedule a tour, email highlineelc@chs-wa.org or call (206) 824-1378 or text (910) 518-5437.
