The Kitsap Sun reported that the girl somehow apparently got out of an enclosed play area at Chico Christian Childcare Center.
Sheriff's office spokesman Scott Wilson said investigators have not ruled out the possibility she was hit by a car.
The girl was found on her hands and knees about a foot from the rear wheel of a pickup truck by man dropping off his child.
He was about to move his truck when he heard crying.
State officials said there have been no previous incident reports and no substantiated complaints on Chico Christian Childcare Center.
