Launch has been a YDEKC Member organization since 2011, and for four decades, they have been dedicated to serving children of all backgrounds in the greater Seattle area. Their programs support a child’s social, emotional, and educational development — leading to brilliant outcomes. There are twelve locations run by trained and caring staff who provide research-based, enriching activities for preschool and school-age children. Launch is here to serve families!
Launch offers a year-round kindergarten readiness Preschool Program for children ages 3-5; a School Age Program that includes remote learning support, virtual field trips, enrichment activities, and outdoor play; and nine weeks of Summer Programs for children ages 3–12, with weekly themes and flexible enrollment — sign up for however many weeks best meets your family’s needs. Every aspect of their research-based programs is designed with children’s social, emotional, and academic needs in mind. Launch's collaboration with Seattle Public Schools allows staff to communicate and partner with teachers, building on and complementing school-day learning. When COVID-19 hit, they quickly shifted their before-and-afterschool programming to full-day care, prioritizing free care to essential workers.
