New childcare option opens in Washougal
SWCCC provides before- and after-school care at Hathaway Elementary
Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Two childcare programs are joining forces to offer local families increased options.
The Southwest Washington Child Care Consortium is partnering with the Washougal Community Education’s Safe Place Activities Center to bring before- and after-school care to kindergarten through fifth-grade students. It is housed at Hathaway Elementary School.
SPACE operates out of Gause Elementary, but is not open on non-school days such as teacher in-service times, or winter break.
However, SWCCC is only closed for major holidays and is open during all school break times. Unlike SPACE, it also accepts state subsidies.
