Minor Avenue Childrens House

Preschool in Seattle, WA 98109

Minor Avenue Children’s House was established in the Spring of 2010. Haggard Nelson Childcare Resources, an early childhood consulting team, administers the program on a day to day basis.

Minor Avenue Children’s House is a busy and exciting learning environment designed to meet the needs of Infant, Toddler and Preschool age children. Your child will be encouraged to explore a wide variety of age-appropriate, hands-on activities, all at his or her own pace.

Our philosophy is based on Maria Montessori’s principals for early care and education. We believe that children grow and learn best in a warm, nurturing, well-organized environment. Our teachers are sensitive and respectful to each child’s individuality and encourage each child to develop a joyful confidence with which to explore our constantly changing world. We welcome a multicultural community of families and are committed to supporting this diversity in all areas of our early childhood program.

A relationship of mutual respect and support between parents and teachers promotes a positive environment for children.

Children learn by exploring their world. At Minor Avenue Children’s House we emphasize an environment in which children may freely explore social relationships and age-appropriate materials and activities that are intellectually stimulating, creative and developmentally organized. Our staff uses the interests and the needs of the children as their guide in developing their programs.

Respected and cherished for his or her own uniqueness, a child develops respect for others. Children are encouraged to learn not only from the classroom activities and teachers, but from each other as well.

We believe that a child’s most critical learning period occurs during the first six years of life. An early childhood program cherishing children for who they are and nurturing the natural joy of learning provides the framework in which intellectual, emotional and social development go together.

At Minor Avenue Children’s House, children are encouraged and helped to:

  • Develop enthusiasm and pleasure from new and challenging experiences.
  • Grow in self-confidence and independence
  • Develop self-discipline and inner motivation.
  • Care for the environment around them.
  • Be caring and respectful, nurturing self-esteem in themselves as well as in others.

We believe children need to feel loved, accepted and secure. They need to know there is someone close by to help, but they also need the room to grow and explore on their own. We are proud of and honor the cultural and national diversity represented among the families in our programs. Our goal is to support each child in their similarities and differences through curriculum development, positive person-to-person communications and teacher education.

We follow federal, state and local laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, political belief, marital status, mental or physical differences or sexual orientation. We do not discriminate when hiring staff or accepting children into our program.
