A note from Kelly Hampton, Associate Director for Preschool Services:

Hello! I am thrilled to join Team Side-by-Side and explore how to give kids the gift of play and friendship in a consistent, caring environment, and also encourage parents as they provide for their kids in unimaginable circumstances. It's a joy to see the children’s faces when they walk into a room tailor-made for them—a place where they feel empowered to engage their curiosity because we have said YES to them!  

In November 2017, we launched a preschool playgroup on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings in the playroom of the Ronald McDonald HouseAs time goes on, we plan to expand this playgroup into a more robust preschool program, providing developmentally-appropriate support for preschool kids whose families are dealing with serious illness.

 

WE ARE HIRING:

We seek an Assistant Teacher to work alongside our Preschool Director to provide a fun and safe learning environment for preschoolers living at Seattle’s Ronald McDonald House. 17 hours per week starting in mid-August, 2018. Preschool will meet Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings during the 2018/2019 academic year.
