Welcome to The Children’s Courtyard daycare and preschool in Lacey, WA! My name is Lei Pedro and I am the school director. Our school is a wonderful place for your child to begin their education.
We offer programs for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years through our Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and Before-and-After School programs. We transport school aged children to the following elementary schools: South Bay, Meadows, Evergreen Forrest and Seven Oaks.
We have updated some of our health and safety protocols. Parents need to remain outside the center, social distance, and wear face masks. A staff member will meet you to take your child's temperature before escorting them inside to their classroom. At the end of they day, a staff member will bring your child back to you outside for pick-up. If you need to enter the lobby for any reason, face masks and temperature screenings are required. We are following all local Health Department and CDC guidelines. All staff members are required to wear face masks throughout the day. We are continuing to follow our rigorous health and safety protocols, follow universal health precautions, and promote cleanliness and good hygiene with the children (including frequent hand washing, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and items throughout the center).
We offer parents a mobile app called Brightwheel that sends real-time photos and updates of their child’s day straight to their mobile device! We also offer WatchMeGrow, a streaming video service that allows you to stream live video from any browser, tablet or mobile phone.
We look forward to meeting you and hope you become a part of our Children's Courtyard Family!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
Elective programs allow students to learn by exploring creative outlets that will help them advance in the future—while giving your family more free time on evenings and weekends. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math
We’ve been recognized as a high-quality early education program.
