The ASB Child Care Center is a service provided for students and funded by the Associated Student Body in cooperation with college administration and parent fees. Children must be between the ages of 18 months and 5 years old. Students enrolled for at least 10 credits at North Seattle Community College receive priority consideration.
Each child is encouraged to build a positive self-image through his/her intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. The Child Care Center staff has college degrees in Early Childhood Education and Child Development. The Center is licensed by the state Department of Social and Health Services and participates in the City of Seattle’s Comprehensive Child Care Program.

The Child Care Center offers a safe and nurturing environment where your child will have a positive social experience and age appropriate learning experiences. We achieve this philosophy by keeping the following things in mind:
- Parents are the single most important influence in a child’s life. The greater a parent’s communication with the teachers and involvement in the classroom, the greater will be the child’s opportunity to learn and grow, both at home and in school.
- Only with a positive self-concept can a child develop to his/her full potential. All activities in our program encourage the development and maintenance of a positive self-concept and respect for the child’s individuality, family identity and cultural/ethnic background.
- Children develop continuously through a series of fixed stages at their own individual rates. Children learn primarily through self-directed interaction with an environment rich in concrete sensory experiences. For this reason we include in our program teacher-initiated (structured) activities, free play (child-initiated) time, large and small group periods, and time for small and large muscle movement.
- Learning to interact positively with peers and adults is an important accomplishment of the preschool years. Children at our center learn the social and emotional skills to live in harmony with each other.
