Not Just Child Care

Our program is designed to provide a process-oriented environment dedicated to the positive, supportive, and individualized growth of the "whole" child. Because children learn by "doing," we offer experiences and activities throughout the day that focus on the cognitive, spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth of each child.

Play Based Learning

We believe each child has the ability to actively and constructively build their own knowledge, and that children learn best through their own play time.

Quality Care Standards

We are proud participants in the Washington State Early Achievers program.
