I recommend preschool shopping. Not every preschool will be a fit for your family and child’s needs. Take tours, ask questions and be wary of those that will not give you tours or hold open houses/enrollment functions.

We hold enrollment nights from March through August or until we are at capacity. You may use the link to sign up for any one of the available time slots. If none of the available times work for you please contact us via the contact us page to schedule a private walk through.

Classes:

All our classes teach through age appropriate play-based learning in a structured, supportive, loving and kind environment. Learning is cumulative and RIKD LLC believes to truly prepare children for the future the early education system must be designed with that in mind. We offer the following classes for the following age groups:

  • The Preschool Beginnings Class is for our very littlest friends, it is 2.5 hours long 2 days a week. We are focused on socialization, increasing attention span, and teaching emotional control/management while introducing the basic idea of academics through age appropriate play, and activities in a more structured but highly supported environment. This is achieved with a ratio of 6:1. The cost for this class is $1500.00 or $150.00 a month for 10 months. This class is offered at our Rainier location.
  • Preschool Class 101, this class starts to focus more on academics while still teaching/reinforcing appropriate social and emotional control/management. We are working on expanding our attention span and focus more and more every day with a 2.5 hour a day, 2 days a week schedule. It has a ratio at 8:1 and requires more from our friends but is still age appropriate and supportive to meet their needs. The cost for this class is $1500.00 or $150.00 a month for 10 months. This class is offered at our Yelm location.
  • Preschool Class 102, this class starts to focus more on academics while still teaching/reinforcing appropriate social and emotional control/management. We are working on expanding our attention span and focus more and more every day with a 3 hours a day, 3 days a week schedule. It has a ratio at 8:1 and requires more from our friends but is still age appropriate and supportive to meet their needs. The cost for this class is $2000.00 or $200.00 a month for 10 months. This class is offered at our Rainier location.
  • Pre-K Class 101, this class is focused on cementing the social and emotional tools learned up to this point and preparing every child for the demands of primary school in an emotionally safe and supported environment. A ratio of 8:1 ensures that each child has the support required to learn all the benchmarks needed to be successful learners and future adults. We meet 3 hours a day for 3 days a week. The cost for this class is $2000.00 or $200.00 a month for 10 months. This class is offered at our Yelm location.
  • Pre-K Class 102, this class is focused on cementing the social and emotional tools learned up to this point and preparing every child for the demands of primary school in an emotionally safe and supported environment.

We meet 3 hours a day for 4 days a week. The cost for this class is $2500.00 or $250.00 a month for 10 months. This class is offered at our Rainier location.
  • Transitional Kindergarten (T-K) Class, this class is for our oldest friends that are cognitively and physically ready to be challenged academically, while reinforcing appropriate social and emotion control/management. 6 months does not seem like a lot but at this stage in development it can make a word of difference in ability. With a ratio of 8:1 this class fills the gap that currently exists for this age group, and it encourages further exploration in a completely supported and emotionally safe environment. It meets 3 hours a day for 4 days a week. The cost for this class is $2500.00 or $250.00 a month for 10 months. This class is offered at our Yelm location.
