Our experiences includes running an accredited Family Home Child Care Facility for 12 years. Our center has been inspected by a state licensee and meets the minimum licensing requirements by Washington State Law.
We have a child centered environment where the children’s needs and interest are above our own. We have a staff that is made up of people with ECE background and people with “hands on” experience in other care settings. Our abilities as a staff may vary in their own strengths and weaknesses, but we can all agree that we are here for the children and it is their development we are nurturing.

We are a state-licensed program. We keep our staff to child ratios within the limits, which are as follows: The 12 months to 2-year-old is 1:7, the 3- to 5-year-old is 1:10, and the 5- to 12-year-old is 1:15. We have a capacity for seventy-seven children. We provide breakfast, AM snack, lunch, a PM snack, dinner, and an evening snack. Our center is divided into classes as follows: one-year-old class, two-year-old class, three-year-old class, four-year-old class, and school-age. During breaks and summer vacations, we offer a summer program for school-age children (5-12). The days are filled with field trips to parks, zoos, museums, aquariums, and overnighters. The children are offered a wide range of activities, including art projects, group games, cooking projects, and gardening. It provides the children a summer of new experiences and educational memories. For example: When you walk into our center, you may find the Toddler One class engaged in making a collage or filling tubs with toys, and the Toddler Two class playing with play dough or creating a group mural, the Pre-School class could be doing anything from cutting and gluing a collage to print painting with gadgets, the Pre-K class could be easel painting or dictating a story to a teacher.
Our goal is to supplement your parenting and support you in your role as a working parent. We encourage you to become active in our program and the activities we offer. If you have any questions, concerns, or problems feel free to talk to your child’s teacher or the administration. We want the best for you and your child!
