Staff strive to create experiences that improve health, foster friendships, and provide unique and engaging experiences that enhance people’s quality of life. Since the beginning of the Coronavirus Pandemic, our staff have been developing strategies that will allow us to serve the community safely.  We continue to monitor the situation with health experts and make adjustments as needed.  Together we will slow the spread and get back to seeing one another more regularly.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Preschool & Preschool Aged Programs

 

The Tukwila Learning Center enhances preschoolers’ confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.

Every day in our Early Foundations Preschool program, children participate in:

  • whole-group instruction twice a day
  • small-group activities that provide skill-based learning opportunities
  • daily literacy-building activities
  • child-directed play in learning centers
  • reflection of daily experiences

While focusing on:

  • Communicating With Others – We guide children to develop communication skills.
  • Building Brain Power – We teach children to gain higher-level thinking skills.
  • Making New Friends – We coach children to nurture strong relationships.
