Family Resources

The WSU Children’s Center mission supports a strong connection between home and school practices. We intentionally create relationships to support family engagement in the following ways:

  • Formal and informal exchange of information with parents through scheduled conferences, center-wide emails and quarterly newsletter and parent education events
  • Access to WSU and community resources
  • Children’s Center social events: Winter Dance, Family BINGO, Fall and Spring picnics and more!

See the Family Handbook (PDF) for more detailed information.

The Children's Center Family Alliance (CCFA) provides a mutually supportive partnership between WSU Children's Center staff and families.

The CCFA meets once each month and encourages representation from all age groups and families (WSU students, WSU employees, and community).

The CCFA exists to support the children, their families, and the teachers and staff at the WSU Children's Center through:

  • building community between families and teachers by planning events
  • supporting all families through sharing, communication, and resources
  • assisting teachers with their identified needs
  • showing appreciation for teachers and staff
  • minor fundraising as needed to support the work of this group and the Center

The CCFA is open to any parent, guardian, or other adult student parent for a child at the WSU Children's Center. The Director and any Lead Teacher may also be a member.

The WSU Children’s Center welcomes community volunteers to share time and talent in the classroom. All volunteer relationships to be coordinated through the Children's Center main office.
