We are so excited to share our unique story with you! As toddlers, we met at a home daycare on Mercer Island. We instantly became best friends and spent our childhood days playing daycare and school with dolls as our students! By the age of 3, we planned to become future daycare ladies.

After growing up on Mercer Island, managing our own babysitting business, graduating from MIHS, joining the same sorority at Washington State University, and graduating with degrees in Early Childhood Education, here we are as Daycare Ladies! Our love for children has only grown over the years.

The two of us had such a wonderful experience growing up in a nurturing play-based environment; we only hope to create the same impact on your child by being their home away from home! We are passionate about providing a caring and compassionate environment for your child to learn and grow.

We believe in learning through play and experiences. At The Growing Tree, children are encouraged to play, create, and imagine. We have designed a curriculum in which children will learn through exploration, socialization, and imagination.

Kiddin' Around Childcare

2021 144th Ave NE, Bellevue, WA

Starting at $250/session

In addition to snuggles and hugs, your child will learn through intentional play based activities. We help them safely test limits, wipe tears as they discover gravity, and offer reassurance as they begin to understand an occasional failure is a necessary part of future success.
At Kiddin' Around we encouraging your child to explore curiosities and discover new interests. Your child is encouraged to identify a sense of who they perceive themselves as today, and how they envision themselves tomorrow. As likes/dislikes are respected, and strengths/challenges are supported, your child begins to build the confidence and self-esteem needed to ask the 'why' and 'how' questions relevant to them. We provide your child with opportunities to cultivate a solid sense of "self" and discover the amazing 'ME' they're becoming. Your child will learn to trust themselves; their instinct, their intelligence, their abilities, and to value their individuality.
I've asked kindergarten teachers, what skills they would like children to have prior to entering the classroom. They unanimously agree, although ABC's and 123's are always a priority, the higher priorities introduction to the basics; sharing, taking-turns and negotiating; following age appropriate instructions; ability to transition; recognize their name; zip coats; tie shoes; and the ever so important, 'braids are for looking pretty, not for pulling!'
As parents, you may have a 'mental checklist' of preschool expectations. I'd like to challenge you to set that image aside; close your eyes and remember your favorite activity as a 4 y/o. Was it baking cookies, or building the highest block tower? Ask yourself if as a 4 y/o, you'd rather have learned the alphabet by writing lessons or by mixing cookie dough, shaping, baking, frosting and eating the alphabet?! Would 4 y/o you rather count pegs on a board or oversized blocks as they reached the moon and again as they toppled over? Learning organically through play is so much more fun! And your child's retention of their new knowledge/skill has been reinforced with happiness and fun! This is the core of our program and method of teaching. Yes, we play all day, but we play with guidance, purpose and intent! (OK...you can open your eyes now ;-)
