Safe and Stimulating Environment
As a full-service, licensed, and family owned business, Kid’s Country was established with the goal to promote a safe and nurturing learning environment that stimulates your child’s growth. Our curriculum, activities, and room arrangements are all tailored to be age appropriate. Additionally, our curriculum follows both weekly and monthly themes.
A Typical Day at Kid’s Country
A typical day at Kid’s Country will include activities like reading, looking at books, writing, drawing, dancing, singing, cutting, pasting, painting, assembling art projects, experimenting, exploring, and enjoying the environment. One of our primary areas of focus is meeting each child’s individual needs. We encourage children to progress at their own pace and they are placed in the classroom that will help them the best. This encourages self-confidence and healthy growth which results in a strong, positive self-image.
In fact, the Kid's Country motto is to allow children to love, laugh, learn, and grow. By keeping the environment fun and positive, we create a safe haven—a home away from home—for your children. All of our classrooms are warm, cozy, and filled with personal touches that allow your kids to feel comfortable. It is our responsibility to work in partnership with your family and help enhance and support, not replace, the relationship between parents and children.
Life long learning begins with the infants. Because every infant is unique, each infant has their own personalized schedule. Our caregivers partner with you to find out what your routine is at home, and follow it to make transitions easier. All infants eat, sleep and are cared for based on their own needs. Interactions with our teachers help foster positive and trusting relationships with their care giving adults. Our classroom environments are clean, neat, safe and warm.
We believe that play is learning, and that toddlers lives should be filled with opportunities for rich play. Our program encourages independence (self help skills) as well as social skills like learning about friendship, sharing, playing together or parallel play. Our learning center introduces new concepts and fosters hands on learning. Activities focus on repetition and helping toddlers master basic concepts like direction.
For Preschool, daily activities are designed to get your children ready for school. All classrooms have themes that direct childrens’ learning. Teachers prepare activities, keeping in mind the need for repetition, and the importance of play and exploration. Activities included in the program are language development, science, math, fine and gross motor skills, cooking and independent play.
This program focuses on kindergarten readiness skills. Fine motor skills are taken further by teaching children to write their name. We further expand the skills they have begun to develop in vocabulary and reading basic words. We create intentional learning experiences to expand their critical thinking skills. Children learn how identify patterns, complete sequences and to follow multiple step directions. This gives our children the confidence to transition right into elementary school.
Our after school care is safe, supervised and convenient. We have after school care, care for days when school is out and summer camp.
We hope you can see how important caring for your children is to all of us at Kid’s Country. We pride ourselves on being a premier and trustworthy child care provider for the Seattle area. Watching your kids grow and learn gives us joy and fulfillment. If you like what you see, we invite you to learn more by touring one of our facilities. Hopefully you’ll then apply for admission, which is granted without discrimination or regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, or religion.
