Childcare & Education

From the very beginning Darrington's top priority was the education of our children!  The first Darrington School opened its doors in 1893 enrolling four local students to ensure they would receive a proper education.

At Kid's Place, we believe in educating the whole child.  We know that many components of children's lives affect their success in learning: wellness,family involvement, nutrition, a safe environment and a diverse community.

Our mission is: to be mindful of these components while planning our lessons, meals and activities.
