Our Facility

We are located at 345 Kimball in Pullman, WA. All classrooms are fully furnished, designed with the child in mind, and staffed by caring professionals.

Infant Room

  • Serves ages 1 month through 11 months
  • Staff-to-Child Ratio: 1:4 (1 teacher for every 4 infants)
  • Classroom Capacity: 12 infants

The peaceful, yet, interactive atmosphere of our Infant Classroom aims to make a child’s first transition away from home successful for both the child and their parents. We incorporate a weekly lesson plan that is full of both indoor and outdoor activities that stimulate a developing infant’s cognitive, motor, and social skills for each developmental stage. Infants are cuddled and talked to often and are introduced to simple sign language to give them a way to communicate. The activities and daily schedule in our Infant Classroom is flexible and modified to meet the individual infant’s eating and sleeping schedule.

Waddler Room

The teachers also help make every moment a learning opportunity where they work on sharing, taking turns, and using their words.

Activities are designed to help the child develop spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and physically and include: sensory activities, pretend play, reading, painting, building, outdoor play, and more.  Sign language is used in the Toddler Classroom as a tool to help develop successful, confident communicators by reducing the frustration toddlers have with not being able to effectively communicate.

Preschool Curriculum

The Preschool program is for children age 4 to 5 and helps prepare children for Kindergarten.  We offer opportunities for children to explore their independence while learning how to cooperate with their peers in a more structured environment.

Preschoolers also learn about God and the Bible and are taught important Biblical values, such as: forgiveness, respect, responsibility, honesty and integrity.
