Mission Statement

To provide quality and culturally appropriate early childhood care for the Native children of our community and to provide a safe and nurturing environment for their physical, social, and intellectual growth.


We are funded through the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) and offer choices for your family's child care needs.

Grandview Early Learning Center

Grandview Early Learning Center (GELC) is the Puyallup Tribe's child care center. We follow the Tribal Administration building holiday schedule and Chief Leschi's weather closures.

Subsidized Childcare Assistance Program

GELC's subsidized childcare program is also federally funded through the CCDF. We offer this program to give parents a choice of their childcare providers. GELC will help pay for either a LICENSED PROVIDER (cares for child in a licensed facility/home), NON-LICENSED PROVIDER (must care for child in child’s home), RELATIVE PROVIDER (can care for child in relative’s home or child’s home).
