Our Centers

We operate two early learning and child care centers in Vancouver -- Children's Village-Burton Road and Children's Village-Salmon Creek.   Our Burton Road center opened 28 years ago; our Salmon Creek center 15 years ago.   We teach, love and care for children ages 4 weeks to 12 years.  Our staff of early learning professionals is among the most experienced in the state--some have been with us more than 20 years.

What We Believe

We believe that children need love, opportunities to explore their world, nutritious meals, exercise and healthy relationships with trusted adults in order to reach their full potential.  Our goal is to see every preschooler reach kindergarten readiness and to support each older child's continued success in school.

What We Do

In our classrooms, children grow and learn through individual and group play and activities. Our teachers provide opportunities to explore science, math, music, art and literature.  On our playground, children run and play with their friends, exercising their bodies, developing relationships and learning to play together. 

We recognize the importance of helping the children develop a healthy lifestyle. The children eat healthy snacks and meals together, seated at a table, learning to serve themselves and to use good mealtime manners.  We teach the children to wash their hands well and often, and we help each infant, toddler and preschooler brush their teeth each day.

At Children's Village, we believe that parents are their child's most important teacher. We are privileged and excited to work with parents--supporting them in any way possible, and working with them to address challenges their child may face.

Our Programs

We offer traditional early childhood education classes, a before and after school program, Early Head Start and ECEAP classes.
