La Puerta was founded in 1971 by a group of women dedicated to providing excellent child care to a widely diverse group of children and families.
Since that time, parents, staff, administration and the board of directors have strived to continue this tradition of excellence in an atmosphere that is warm and open to all.
We feel it is important for parents to share in the growth and learning experiences of their children through frequent communication with the staff.
Parent involvement in La Puerta is further encouraged in such areas as serving on the board of directors, participating in work days and building projects, participating in fund raisers and contributing individual skills and talents in the development of our program.
Our school relocates to 3001 Trellis NW on September 3, 2013.
