About UsChildStrive’s success stems from a foundational belief in family empowerment and a strength-based model that maximizes each child’s abilities so that they can get the very best start in life. We use a hands-on coaching model. Our staff supports parents and other care givers, enhancing their capacity to meet the specific needs of their infants and toddlers, in the child’s natural learning environments – at home, at their child care center, or in other community settings.
At the core of ChildStrive’s values is the belief that cross-disciplinary teams made up of occupational, speech and physical therapists, educators, family counselors, parent educators and family resource coordinators who provide parent coaching and utilize reflective questioning will empower families to build on their strengths and provide their children the very best start in life.
ChildStrive started serving families in Snohomish County in 1963 as Little Red School House. As times changed and discoveries were made related to early childhood brain development, our mission changed and expanded.
