The ABCs of Black History

February is Black History Month so we wanted to share with you some of our favorite children's literature. These can be found in the lobby area of both centers.

The ABCs of Black History by Rio Cortez is a great book, and one of our school favorites. This can also be found in the lobby but if you would like to listen at home, simply click the YouTube link below.

We wanted to share a couple books that your children might enjoy.

What Do You Love About You? by Karen Lechelt.
You Are Awesome by Susann Hoffmann.
Both of these fantastic books showcase and celebrate the potential in all of us.

Happy Self-Love Day to you all! We would love for you to ask your littles what they love about themselves, let us know in the comments ๐Ÿ’œ

Hi all. Whew, the New Year rushed in, and it's hard to believe that January is approaching its end. We do have some fun things instore this year, and we're kicking it off next month:

Ever wondered what goes on inside our classrooms all day? Want to get an in-depth look at our facilities? Feel like taking a night off from cooking!? Come join us for an open house on February 24th. Feel free to bring the kiddos and any other parties who might be interested in learning a little bit more about our programs.


As this year comes to a close, and the new year is about to dawn, we wanted to wish you all the HAPPIEST New Year.

Here's hoping that 2022 was full of joy, happy kiddos, and stellar memories...and that 2023 will be even better.

We cannot wait to spend it with you all!

**Gentle reminder that we will be closed on Monday, January 2nd, 2023 to observe the New Year.


As this festive season continues, reminders of reasons to be thankful are plenty. Today, we wanted to give a special Thankful Thursday shoutout to Seattle's own Downtown Ambassadors.

We see them, daily, zooming through the streets making sure that everything nearby is clean as well as maintaining a safe and welcoming downtown. Over the past year, they've removed nearly 1.3 million gallons of garbage, did away with nearly 30,000 graffiti tags, and helped almost 22,000 people with directions.

We know we appreciate them helping keep our kiddos safe during our adventures in the downtown corridor.


December sure is full of fun and festive days and celebrations. Today is no different! It's National Gingerbread House Day today. What better way to kick it off than by reading the story of everyone's favorite little troublemaker, The Gingerbread Man!

Echoes of " run as fast as you can" sound throughout the center.

To revisit the story, here's an amazingly narrated and animated version to watch with the kiddos. :)


As always, thank you so much for the kind words. We cherish our relationships with our kiddos and their families, and we're so happy to have created a safe, fun, and loving place of learning.


KidsCentre is on the lookout for some amazing teachers!

With the West Seattle Bridge opening, we are now ONLY 15 minutes from West Seattle!

Employment type: Full-time
Toddler Teacher(s)
Monday through Friday

We are a private early learning center located in downtown Seattle looking for great teachers to become part of our exceptional program. Our mission is to provide a safe and creative environment that fosters our children's social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth. While we want to provide the best childcare experience for the families we serve, we believe providing the best place to work for our employees is equally important.

Our team is committed to the field of early learning and truly enjoy their work. We know that working together and having fun is important to creating an inspiring environment for staff and children alike. We put a high value on feedback from our employees to create a fun and enjoyable working environment. We believe that our teachers are professionals and experts in their field and we work hard to support that belief. One of the ways we support the teachers and the children in our care is to limit our ratios beyond what the state requires. Our young toddler ratio is 1:4 (vs. state - 1:7), and our older toddler ratio is 1:5 (vs. state - 1:7). We are committed to lower ratios in all of our classrooms.

If you feel that you are the right candidate for the job, please submit your resume for consideration.


Gentle reminder that KidsCentre's Annual Food Drive is in full swing. We are collecting donations until this Friday (November 18th, 2022) after which all items collected will be donated to Northwest Harvest.

Our centres have donation bins conveniently located in the lobbies for families who wish to participate.

As always, we appreciate you, and thank you.

What an amazing time we all had celebrating this lovely autumn season with our KidsCentre kiddos and their families. We face painted, candy corn tossed, hay mazed, and cupcaked our way to a spooky good time.

Thank you so much for coming out celebrating with us!!


Our biannual Professional Development Day was a huge success. Our entire KidsCentre team was able to get together, brainstorm, and grow as a unit.
Days like this make us stronger teachers so that we can implement fresh ideas and explore new professional horizons.

A massive THANK YOU goes out to all of our parents for partnering with us to make this day of learning happen.


Another review has come rolling in, and we can't be more appreciative for the kind words! We are so happy to create a safe and welcoming environment that fosters learning.
Thanks so much for trusting us with your little ones!


Our amazing chefs have been hard at work cooking up our autumn menu. Take a peek at the pic to see how fine we are dining for the rest of this week (Thursday and Friday). Our kiddos get to enjoy a carefully curated, globally-inspired menu with the goal of happy bellies, healthy bodies, and getting kids interested in foods they might not get to taste elsewhere.

If you want to view the entire fall menu, check out this link, and click the download menu button:


Happy *WORLD* Smile Day!

At KidsCentre, we strive to make learning fun. Play-based curriculum in each classroom, globally inspired lunch menus, daily trips to our private playground, and passionate, energetic teachers bring out these smiles each and every day.

Schedule a tour today by calling (206) 623-5437 or emailing [email protected] to come see these smiles for yourself! :)


Come get spooky with us here at KidsCentre!


It's easy to leave work with a happy heart after reading reviews like this one. Children are our passion, and knowing that we are able to provide a place of learning that is safe, comfortable, and FUN makes everything worth it.
Thanks for sharing your kiddos' lives with us! :)


๐ŸŽถReuniiiiiited, and it feeeeels so good!๐ŸŽถ

Welcome back, West Seattle! What a relief for us all to have the West Seattle Bridge back open. The bridge closure increased the commute from West Seattle immensely, but, with the reopening last week, that commute was greatly diminished. Now, it only takes about 15-20 minutes to get from here. No more hours spent in the car.

Live in West Seattle, but looking for a great preschool downtown? Come check out KidsCentre. We have immediate openings in our infant and Pre-K classes and are so excited to kick off some fall-time fun with kiddos new and old.


Did you know that today is World Gratitude Day?

We can think of so many things that we are grateful for. We're grateful for this beautiful week of fall weather. We're grateful for the smiling faces of all of our kiddos. We're grateful for happy teachers who come to work each day ready to educate. We're grateful for pumpkins and incoming costumes! Thank YOU for allowing us all to play a role in all of your families. We are grateful for you.

What are you grateful for?


When presented with an opportunity, KidsCentre doesn't shy away from taking it!

Our summer campers spent some time this afternoon learning a little about community and a lot about art!

Thanks to Diane at Diane's Market Kitchen for giving our kiddos a chance to help turn a broken window into something beautiful.

Stay tuned for the finished product!


Turtles, rabbits, and snakes - oh my! Our kiddos had such a good time getting to meet some animal friends up close and personally.

KidsCentre consistently strives to provide a dynamic curriculum dotted with fun enrichment activities. We were so excited to have a visit from Animal Encounters earlier this week to learn some interesting new facts!


Whew! It's been nice and warm out lately, and we've been taking full advantage of the gorgeous summer sunshine.

At KidsCentre, we view the playground and outdoors as additional classrooms, and we take a lot of pride in all of the work we have put into having four great spaces for outside play!

We have completely renovated our playground into an exciting and dynamic outdoor educational experience. Our outdoor learning environment offers various creative spaces for our children to explore, from sensory water tables and two great sandboxes to multiple large- motor areas designed for dramatic play. Toys and structures are strategically placed around our outdoor environment to encourage imaginative interaction โ€“ such as playhouses and a large wooden boat!


KidsCentre is HIRING!

We have multiple positions open in classrooms of differing age groups (infant - preschool ages).

Employees at KidsCentre enjoy a beautiful locale in downtown Seattle about two blocks from the waterfront.

Our classrooms are given lower student-to-teacher ratios than is recommended by the state, and our teachers are given the freedom to create their own classroom's curriculum based on subjects in which their kiddos display interest.

We are big on diversity at KidsCentre! Nearly 15 languages are spoken throughout our center, and we embrace every culture.

Receive a $250 sign-on bonus after 3 months of employment and again after 6 months of employment.

This month, we'd like to recommend a book that celebrates Pride. 'Rainbow' by Michael Genhart is an ode to rainbow families that affirms a parent's love for their child(ren) and a child's love for their parents. This book takes us through all of the colors of the rainbow and what they mean in relation to Pride.

There is a copy of this book in the lobby of our centers. Please feel free to pick it up and give it a look.

Further, don't forget to celebrate Pride with us tomorrow, June 24th, by wearing rainbow colored clothing to school!


Graduation is always a little bittersweet. It's so exciting to see some kiddos off to take on the world, but it's so sad to see them go. We're so fortunate to get to spend time with our preschoolers and kindergarteners. Creating happy memories through education is our goal, and we're so proud of our graduates.

Congratulations to all!!
