The Child Development Center


How to Enroll

Quality Childcare for WOU and the Surrounding Community!

Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child in the TRI Child Development Center.  We know that choosing a program that provides high-quality child care and education is of the utmost importance to you.  We do our best to accommodate the needs of children and their families. We encourage you to make an appointment to tour the center before you submit your application.  During the tour you will have the opportunity to see us in action and ask questions. If you choose to bring your child, this will give him or her the chance to explore our learning environment.

Our Family Handbook is an excellent way to view our policies and procedures. Classroom copies of the handbook are also available for viewing throughout the year.  If you would like a hard copy please do not hesitate to request one in writing. We are looking forward to meeting you and your child and beginning our adventure together.  The first step to enrolling is to complete our application and return it to the Center’s office.
