Simply put, our primary goal is to provide C&C kids with a happy, healthy and rewarding experience in a safe environment. A child’s program experience plays a very important role in his or her growth and development. C&C kids will gain self-esteem and self-confidence, learn from new experiences, make new friends, and create memories that will last a lifetime!

Fun holiday celebrations!

Afterschool Program summary: Free snack after school along with homework assistance and enriching activities.  Children have outdoor and indoor free time, allowing them to get their wiggles out after a long day in the classroom.  Children are offered activities ranging from arts and crafts, science and math projects, drama, music, storytelling, and science lessons.    

Healthy after school snacks!

Winter/Spring/Summer Day Camp summary: Our seasonal camps provide children with unique experiences that help them to grow, learn, have fun, and build lasting relationships. At C&C we foster the values of sharing, integrity, responsibility, and respect. Each season our campers embark upon a journey that develops a greater sense of self-esteem and self-confidence. When camp ends, they will leave with new friends and memories that will last a lifetime.  Children will have daily adventures that take them throughout our local community.  They will learn how to become community members and what it feels like to impact others within it.  Children are offered activities ranging from arts and crafts, science and math projects, drama, music, storytelling, and science lessons.

Pacific Northwest Discovery Academy (PAC WEST) is a school age academic program within a Washington State Licensed Childcare facility. PAC WEST is a program for school age children whose parents have chosen an alternative to public school for their child/children’s education.   

PAC WEST will support OSPI benchmarks for student learning and is using a certified curriculum.  Students will attend daily and be given a safe, consistent assisted classroom environment to complete their studies.  Classroom teachers are certified and prepared to support families throughout this process.  PAC WEST will also provide additional enrichment programs that students will participate in alongside their academic learning.  Teachers will provide additional daily classes such as music, art, drama, cultural studies, human and social relations, physical education and nutrition, home economics, engineering, robotics, American Sign language, and a variety of other subjects.

We feel that PAC WEST is an opportunity to educate the whole child. We feel that students should learn in a positive school climate that offers long-term, secure relationships that support academic, physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development.   We support outdoor learning and exploration along with academics and a diverse learning environment.  Students will have opportunities to expand their learning styles and develop social emotional skills to better communicate with one another and the community.  PAC WEST teachers believe and support each student as a human being in full, and do not limit the scope of their education to only a narrow focus on core subject areas.

Classroom ratios; 20 students, 3 teachers.  PAC WEST will be following all Department of Child and Family Services, CDC and WA State Health Department COVID19 guidelines and recommendations.  All teachers and assistants will have DCYF background clearance and will have completed a program orientation and state licensed required training.
