Hi, I'm Kim Johnson, Director here at Discovery Playtown, a licensed child care center. We accept children 12 months to 9 years old for up to 10 hours daily, with a focus on positive social-emotional learning. In order to reduce the number of people coming into the center, we accept children for full-day care only and we no longer offer drop-in or hourly care.

Our facility is licensed for 63 children in five classrooms, far fewer than many other centers. Our smaller size offers the advantages of more personal and collaborative instruction and care, and fewer people coming and going inside the building. We maintain the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness and enforce a strict health policy including daily screenings.

Inside our classrooms, children explore realistic full-scale playhouses including a treehouse, 2-story playhouse, and a townscape of themed shops. Our teachers guide children through a daily curriculum with structured routines and lots of small group activities. Lesson planning focuses around each child's developmental ability through observation and assessments.

We strive to form a parent/teacher team as we work toward goals in your child's developmental stages, and focus on bridging the gap between home and preschool with close communication and teamwork. Please call me at (425) 437-0001 to discuss your family's child care needs or submit an inquiry here.
