Welcome to Bellevue College Early Learning Center

Fully Enrolled-23-24 school year

We are fully enrolled until September 2024. Currently, we only have Headstart spaces available in our Preschool/Pre-K classrooms. If you are on a subsidy and have a child between 3-5 we have space for you. If anything else opens up, we go to the waitlist and contact families from that. Please get on the waitlist now and we’ll be in touch.

A view of our Toddler Play Space

Thanks to our partnership with Costco, we have renovated both our playgrounds (Preschool and Toddlers).

The children get two outside times during the day to enjoy our new space.
