How To Enroll
Each semester after you enroll at the College for your classes, bring your schedule to the Children's Center and complete a childcare enrollment packet for your child. When all forms are completed and returned to the Children's Center office, a space will be reserved for your child. All spaces are filled on a first-come, first-served basis each semester, so register early to reserve a space.
Childcare for all clients is provided only while the parent is on campus or has an internship, coop-placement, field trip, clinical or staff conference off campus. All Children's Center enrollment must be for the complete semester, from the first week you enroll through the last day of the semester.
The Children's Centers hours of operation are 7:30am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday.
There will be no subtraction of costs for days missed due to illness, personal business or the occasional cancellation of class. This cannot be done since the child's place is saved and the Center overhead cost Staff, facilities) remain the same.
If the child is absent, time cannot be exchanged for additional time on another day. Since the Center enrollment is a semester, not a weekly commitment, fees will not be decreased due to drops or schedule changes after the last fees dates each semester.
Anyone wishing to enroll their child at the Center must have the following before any service is provided:
- A WCC identification card to prove who they are
- WCC students must provide a copy of their class registration
All forms must be filled out entirely in order to enroll the child. If anything is missing, the parent must take the forms and bring them back filled out. No child will be enrolled until all paperwork is received in the office with the exception of the green health form, which is due the first day the child starts.
Any new parent who will not be attending the in-person parent orientation must be signed up for the online orientation. Parents will need a current activated blackboard account in order to do so.
