CHILD serves approximately 50-70 full-time students placed by parents or in partnership with up to 25 school districts that live in King, Pierce, Snohomish and Kitsap counties and commute daily to our campus.
Our objective is to support students to learn, develop, and apply new skills and information. These new skills allow them to successfully reintegrate to a more traditional school setting—usually within 1 to 3 years. Students can enter our year-round program throughout the year depending on need and space availability.
We invite you to come for a tour of CHILD to see our students, staff, and program. Learn more about CHILD's therapeutic day school program. (PDF)
Since 1980, CHILD has been approved by the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to provide contracted therapeutic services to students from public school districts whose resources cannot adequately serve them.
CHILD admits students of any race, color, national/ethnic origin, religion, gender identity, and socioeconomic class to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and other school-administered programs.
