Vashon Kids

Vashon Kids provides dependable, creative, and convenient before and after school care for 5 to 12-year-olds. Our program is located at Chautauqua Elementary School, but open to all island kids. We offer full-time, part-time and drop-in care options. Thanks to Island donors, we are able to provide scholarships to those in need.

Since 1995, we have provided creative programming, delivered by experienced staff, that encourages your child's unique spirit to thrive. We promote healthy play, accept differences, and seek to resolve conflicts peacefully while supporting each child's dignity. 

During the school year we have a designated homework time with staff to assist children with their questions. Our staff work cooperatively with Chautauqua educators so we can provide additional learning opportunities that coordinate with school curriculum and events. 

Academic and enrichment activities and clubs focus on science, art, humanities, literacy and sports. Breakfast and healthy afternoon snacks are provided. 

Everyone is welcome at Vashon Kids!
