We are currently fully enrolled for the 2020-2021 school year. And it is with some sadness that we are announcing the closure of our Tacoma campus June of 2021. Gig Harbor will remain open.


While we offer year-round child care our class schedule follows the public school calendar.  Students may start mid-year or during the summer if there are openings, although that is typically rare. When classes fill-up we maintain a wait-list that is based on application date. We begin open-enrollment in January for the upcoming school year. Students must be potty-trained and fully independent in the bathroom prior to beginning at Arcadia.
