We uphold our shared responsibility to foster growth and resilience in young children, families, educators, and the community through individualized, high quality programs.

Now Enrolling for 2022-23 Fall School Year Child Care!

Welcome to Early Care & Education

We assist families, child care providers and community partners in providing quality early learning programs and professional development opportunities throughout the ESD 112 region.

We believe it is our responsibility to:

  • Cultivate an environment that is focused on lifelong learning
  • Engage in a racial equity approach
  • Promote a safe space that allows learners to be vulnerable and take risks
  • Encourage adaptive and continuous learning opportunities
  • Offer a variety of sustainable programs
  • Keep children and families at the center of our work
  • Leverage collaborative relationships
  • Provide equitable and trauma informed practices
  • Confront biases and invite inclusive participation
