Welcome to Mini-Skool in Tacoma. We are a licensed child care center in operation since 1986. We provide care and educational programs for infants, from 4 weeks, through school-age. Our staff is dedicated to providing you and your family with the highest quality of service.
The teachers are “STARS/MERIT” qualified, which means they are up to date on the latest education experience your child can receive. Our curriculum encompasses an outstanding learning program for your child, beginning with our Infants and continuing through the early preschool, preschool and pre-kindergarten years, as well as a before and after school-age program.
Our infants and toddlers are immersed in colors, shapes and sensory. We are a Certified Baby Signs School and our teachers do a fabulous job teaching them to communicate before they can use words. Our preschoolers are doing Zoo-phonics, Spanish, name recognition, writing letters and tracing shapes along with many other exciting curriculum components. We offer a Kindness Curriculum that teaches respect of themselves and others and prepares them to be contributing members of society. In pre-kindergarten the students participate in the Pre-K Plus Program. This includes intensive Hands-On-Science, Lego Engineering and the Bob Books reading program. Our school-agers enjoy field trips in the summer months and fun filled educational camps during school breaks.
With our center being centrally located, we work with three Elementary Schools, Christensen and James Sales in the Franklin Pierce School District, as well as Southgate in the Clover Park School District. These school districts provide transportation for Head Start, ECEAP, Kindergarten and School-Age children. We have a van that provides free transportation to and from James Sales. This provides a great opportunity for parents to choose which school they would like to enroll their child. We are educationally partnered with the Franklin Pierce School District to strengthen the successful transition for Preschool to Elementary School.
We serve breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack that are healthy, nutritious and USDA approved.
We have a large play area for our older children and a separate play area for our younger toddlers. Throughout the school year and summer we have field trips and extra activities that your child can enjoy.
Please call us at 253-531-1100 to set up a visit. We’d love to show you around our beautiful school.
