School Reviews

This center has not been licensed since 2010 but it has continued to operate illegally at 3 different sites until recently. Since the center is not licensed, it doesn''t have to get insurance to cover accidents or report alleged incidents of child abuse or neglect at its sites! We parents deserve the truth from the administrators and we''re not getting it! Please go to the Department of Early Learning (Washington state agency) to verify that this information is (sadly) correct. Let''s stick together parents!

Yes, please do go to the DEL where you will see that this school is fully licensed. It also carries full liability insurance. Unfortunately, a group of vindictive neighbors have been spreading falsities about this wonderful school.
