ON-SITE STAFF, TWELVE SEATTLE-AREA LOCATIONS

Each of our locations is overseen by an on-site program manager who supports the teachers and ensures every child and family has the best possible experience. All staff members participate in continuing professional development to ensure they are current on industry best practices as well as state and federal licensing requirements. Our teachers and program site managers are passionate about their work and the diverse populations they serve. Our locations are supported by administrative and support staff in our Georgetown office.
