Hi, I'm Kim Johnson-Caudill, Director here at Discovery Playtown, a licensed child care center. We accept children 12 months to 6 years old for up to 10 hours daily, with a focus on positive social-emotional learning. As a smaller facility, we offer the advantages of more personal and collaborative care.

Inside our classrooms, children explore realistic full-scale playhouses including a treehouse, 2-story playhouse, and a townscape of themed shops. Our outdoor play area includes ride-on toys, plenty of sidewalk chalk, natural elements, and tables for messy hands-on projects. 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.
