Where Children Blossom

Nurturing each child’s potential is at the heart of the Josie’s Learning Center commitment. Caring for our community’s children creates a bright future for everyone.

Josie’s offers a unique learning experience in an intergenerational community that is beneficial for both the children and the residents. Child care at Josephine began in 1985 and has grown along with the community. We are currently licensed for 111 children and offer many levels of programming to suit families needs including childcare, preschool, Montessori, ECEAP, and school age care.

We pride ourselves on having many dedicated, long-term staff working at Josie’s Learning Center who hold a true passion for their roles. All staff are required to have STARs training (a training system set up by the State of Washington), as well as First Aid/CPR certification. Many of our staff also has Early Childhood Education credits, certificates, and/or degrees.
