Our Preschool and Toddler programs are based on the Montessori Method.  Our Infant program uses the RIE philosophy.  We strive to maintain a 3:1 staff to child ratio with Infants, 5:1 with Toddlers, and 10:1 with Preschoolers. 

We care for children from 3 months - 5 years of age.
Enrollment is available to employees of Seattle Children's as well as Residents, Fellows and hospital-based faculty. You must be regularly scheduled for at least 16 hours per week (0.4 FTE) to apply and remain eligible.  You can download the waitlist application here.
