If you are an HCC student and a parent with a child between 3 months and 12 years, Itsy Bitsy Child Watch is for you! This FREE child watch service can be accessed by registering below. We offer a safe, fun space for children while student-parents are on campus for a short time. Even if you don't think you need this occasional service right now, please register, so if the need arises, you'll be able to have your child join us.

HOW TO REGISTER
  1. Complete the Student-Parent Interest form on Brightwheel
  2. Once we receive your interest form, we will send you the Enrollment Process on Brightwheel for your child/children. This process consists of several forms including submission of your child's immunization record and an annual physical.
  3. Don't forget to download the Brightwheel app on your phone to check your child in and out, receive photos and updates, and be contacted in case of an emergency!
By appointment only

Completion of the following forms does not secure a spot for your child. You will receive an email from Child Watch confirming whether or not we are able to accommodate your request.

Use the following forms if you need care at the same time every week while you attend class.
