Seattle’s Premier Foundational Life Skills Daycare & Preschool

Teaching confidence and self-sufficiency at the most pivotal stages of a child's life


Empowered Kids Preschool grew from the belief that young children benefit from multi-faceted learning. Our innovative, hands-on curriculum teaches basic skills in reading, math, science, and the arts, as well as essential Foundational Life Skills.

Our focus is on a child’s character—teaching them to be strong citizens, to dream and achieve goals, to think of others, and to lead with their hearts as well as their heads.

If you want your child to have more than what a typical daycare or preschool provides, we’d love to talk to you.


Preparing Your Child to Meet the World Head-On.



Our Premise: Foundational Life Skills significantly enhance learning

Research has shown that children who have learned basic life skills during age 0 - 5 are more grounded, self-directed, empathetic, and able to cope with the challenges that future years bring into their lives. Learn more about our Premise >
