Are you looking for a play based child care center in Seattle?
If this describes you, then you have come to the right school! We are much more than a daycare. Seattle Learning Center is a licensed child care and preschool provider. We have a highly educated teaching staff and your child will be in a safe and nurturing environment that encourages them to:
- Experience a variety of physical and stimulating play activities
- Develop their cognitive, physical, and social/emotional skills
- Interact and socialize with other kids their own age
- Gain a love for learning, be independent learners, and have fun!
“Social and emotional school readiness is critical for young children’s early school success-and may even set the stage for success later in life. Those children who enter school without these basic social and emotional competencies are not ready to learn, are less likely to be successful in the early years of school and may face a cascade of behavioral, emotional and academic problems through out their young lives.” -According to the research of National Institute of Mental Health.
Children learn through play. At SLC, we place emphasis on the benefits of learning through play and the importance of developing social-emotional skills. By teaching students skills in self-awareness, self-management, getting along with others, and decision-making, we are giving them the foundation to be successful life long learners in society. In the report, published in the peer-reviewed journal Child Development, researchers led by Joseph A. Durlak, a professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Chicago, found that students who took part in social and emotional learning programs have better grades than those who did not participate.
Currently, we offer the following full-day child care programs:
