Early Learning Center

Early Learning Center for All!

Pope’s Kids Place enrolls children ages 3 through 12 years of age. We serve typical developing children as well as children with special behavioral needs. We provide an individualized learning plan depending on their needs. We celebrate the difference and individuality in every one of our children and not only support the children, but their parents as well.

Pope’s Kids Place promotes physical activities in large open areas, engage in a wide variety of educational games, keep a library of children’s titles, and offer various arts and crafts activities. This way your child can unleash his or her full creative and intellectual potential, while growing up healthy, strong, and happy.

Pope’s Kids Place Early Learning Center’s goal is to develop every child’s skills to be prepared for Kindergarten and grade school. Our teachers collaborate with families as the children with special behavioral needs work on mastering goals set by their individualized learning plan that was created by the child’s support team.

Our hours are based on the parent’s need to make a living for their families. We are open Monday through Friday 6 am to 6 pm. Our early learners enjoy a nutritious, healthy meal prepared from scratch. Pope’s Kids Place is certified and licensed by the state of Washington for all services, and complies with program audits and licensor visits.

We are accepting enrollment applications for our waiting list. We try as much as possible to accommodate as many children as we can while working with parents and their schedule. If you are interested in your child enrolling in our program, please email us at info@popeskidsplace.org or call (360)669-5064 to further discuss your child’s specific needs.
