The Bellevue College Early Learning Center (ELC) is open and accepting new students.

The ELC serves the children of Bellevue College faculty, staff, and students, with half of the slots reserved for Costco employees. Openings are available for children ages 1 through 6 in the toddler and preschool classrooms.

The ELC also has developed a set of COVID-19 protocols using CDC and state-licensing guidelines to keep students, staff, and families healthy. This includes reduced class sizes, daily temperature checks, frequent hand-washing, mask guidelines, and regular surface sanitization.

The center opened its current 22,000-square-foot building in 2001, and provides a space where each child can develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually through its child-centered philosophy and programming.
