School-Age Programs

Kindergarten-5th Grade

Our School Age program follows the Ellensburg School District calendar- We are open for Before School to get kiddos on the bus, and open for After School care where we focuse heavily on school readiness and adding more structure to our weekly lesson plans. Our lesson plans include art projects, science projects, math and writing skills. We also work on encouraging social skills and strengthening the child’s decision-making skills in a safe classroom environment.



The preschool classroom is set up to facilitate team-based lessons, story-time, and independent and creative play. We also have various centers and age-appropriate toys to encourage play-based learning.


Safety and Training

Our teachers are highly educated, trained in development, and effective ways to interact and communicate with preschoolers. Every staff person is First Aid, CPR and Blood Borne Pathogens certified. We also require that each teacher complete a background check, finger printing, and food handler’s certificate.



Happy Feet Academy takes great pride in effective communication and collaboration with parents and families. We provide the following to ensure this communication is upheld:

  • We work hard to learn students and parents names and build personal relationships with each and every family

  • We post lesson plans and menus weekly so you can stay informed about our daily routines

  • We also have an open door policy and encourage all parents to visit the center at anytime to participate and observe.
