ChildStrive

Restoring community. One Family at a Time.

aka Little Red Schoolhouse   |   Everett, WA   |  www.childstrive.org

Mission

ChildStrive partners with families to support young children's success in daily life and in the community. Our vision is that all children will be ready to succeed in school and in life.

We prioritize services to families with children birth to three and have disabilities and delays or who are at-risk of delay.

ChildStrive'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.
