More About Our Curriculum:
Life skill development. We focus on learning life skills that will serve students well throughout their life. Such skills include: cooking & nutrition, sewing, money management, outdoor survival skills, "street smarts" (how to be safe & alert in an urban setting), public speaking, and meditation. Each month is dedicated to learning a different life enriching skill. The month of October is dedicated to learning sewing. Students are sewing trick-or-treat bags!
Yoga + Mindfulness offers essential life management skills that allowkids to access inner resources like their breath, body and mindset in times of stress. When kids can activate their inner resources, they can meet challenges with a sense of personal power, and thrive in a wide variety of circumstances.
Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). We have two different focused SEL classes: Emotion Regulation & Social Skills and Empathy & Relationship Skills. Each class teaches emotional reaction management skills and interpersonal skills, then allows for the opportunity to practice the learned skills, in real-time, with peers during free time. Each class is taught by Child Behavior Specialist, Brandy Simison. If you are unsure which class(es) are most appropriate for your child, please call Brandy at: 425-526-4600 to help you identify the best option.
There are a total of 4 class times available. You may choose 1-4 of these classes. Each class has a different activity to eliminate redundancy and further build knowledge and skills.
Learning Advancement. During this class, children are provided with a level of autonomy. They engage in active learning via their choice of movement, they are assisted to make connections to their learnings with real-world experiences from their interests or prior experiences, and we end with self-reflection to solidify all learnings. We use the child's homework and other lessons to teach them how to learn the material they are given in school.

What about Transportation?
If you are looking for your child to be transported to our center, please read the guidelines below.
For ISD parents: We do have (limited) seats to pick-up from Issaquah Valley Elementary. For Clark Elementary, there is a bus stop at 308th & 86th in Preston. Your child will get off at this bus stop. A staff member or volunteer will be waiting at the stop to escort children to the center. You will need to ask Clark Elementary for a bus pass if this is not your usual stop. Please read below for how to obtain a bus pass. For Cascade Ridge Elementary, we have Snoqualmie Valley Transportation bus (SVTbus.org) pick-up your kiddos at Trossachs Community Park next to the school. A volunteer and/or staff person will escort them to the bus and stay on the bus with them to our center. Then, at the end of the day, the SVT bus will drop your child off at home around 6:15pm.
For SVSD parents: We are working with Snoqualmie Valley Transportation (SVT) so all Snoqualmie Valley District Schools may utilize transportation to our facility. We currently pick-up from Cascade View Elementary and Timber Ridge Elementary. Fall City Elementary has a bus stop down the road from our facility and we will have a staff or volunteer pick-up your child from this nearby bus stop. Note: you will have to submit a "transfer request" from Fall City Elementary. It is a simple process that we will help you with.
My child goes to Clark Elementary, how do I set them up to get off at your bus stop?
You write a letter to your school (email or hand deliver) saying that you would like your child(ren) to get off at the 308th & 86th stop in Preston. You include the days (e.g. Monday-Friday) and the duration (e.g. all school year). Your school will then issue you a bus pass that your child will hand to the assigned bus driver (e.g. route #24 driver). You will also have to sign a necessary release. We will walk you through this entire process.
Do you offer your program on parent/teacher conference days or during winter break, etc.?
We currently offer full-day programming on teacher conference days and are closed during the same holiday breaks as the school district calendar.
