Our philosophy is based on Maria Montessori's principals for early care and education. We believe that children grow and learn best in a warm, nurturing, well-organized environment. Our teachers are sensitive and respectful to each child's individuality. We welcome a multicultural community of families and are committed to supporting this diversity in all areas of our early childhood program. 

We are a member of the American Montessori Society and part of Washington State's Early Achievers program. 


We care for children from 3 months - 5 years of age.
Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis and drawn from our waitlist.  We enroll children throughout the year based on availability.
