Child Care Center

Child care center at Green River Community College

The Green River Child Development Center is operated by Children's Home Society of Washington and is staffed with well-trained, early childhood professionals.

The Center is designed to enable parents to pursue their educations and careers by providing a safe, nurturing environment for their children. We assist in the development of your children's positive self esteem, independence and confidence while fostering their physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth.

The parent is recognized as the child's primary teacher, thus we strive to keep parents informed of their child's development while encouraging parent/child interactions. Toddler notes are sent home daily and parent/teacher conferences are held quarterly.

The Children Experience:

  • Child activities and staff initiated activities
  • Free play, self selected and organized activities
  • Individual, small group and larger group activities
  • Quiet and active experiences

Developmental Areas:

  • Social and emotional
  • Physical growth and development
  • Cognitive and language skills
  • Creative arts, music and movement
  • Self help skills
