About ABC Children’s Center

ABC Children’s Center is located in University Place, across the street from University Place Primary School. We have 8 classrooms, 3 playgrounds and a large greeting area. We believe in celebrating children as individuals for their unique temperament and gifts. ABC Children’s Center provides a developmentally sound, safe environment and Early Childhood education. It is our honor to help you raise and educate confident, kind and knowledgeable children. It is our hope that the children who leave ABC Children’s Center will fondly remember the time they spent laughing, playing and learning here.

The Center is open from 5:30am to 6pm Monday through Friday. We have an open door policy and invite you to stop by during business hours to visit us. We are a unique educational center for children 6 weeks through the fourth grade.

Located at 8545 27th street West in beautiful University Place, Washington, the center includes a modern structure built in 1988, specifically designed as a daycare and educational facility.
