Children in Community & Continuing Education Classes
Community & Continuing education classes are designed to meet the learning needs of adult learners, unless otherwise designated. We do not provide on-site day care and do not allow unregistered children to attend classes or sit unsupervised in public areas. Children under the age of 16 that want to register for a class must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also registered and will be in attendance at all classes with them. Prior approval is required from both the instructor and program manager. To make a request, please call (253) 840-8450 and allow 10 business days before the class begins for processing of your request.
