Child Development Centers
Working parents need a quality environment for their children that is safe, nurturing, and fosters their children's educational and physical development. Easterseals Child Development Centers support families in Washington by providing the highest quality childcare and education for children with and without disabilities. We provide inclusive, quality child development services and support the needs of children of all abilities.
Nationwide, as many as 54 million Americans have a disability. Maybe your neighbor has an injury resulting from a motor vehicle accident, or your coworker has a child with cerebral palsy. Your grandmother may be recovering from stroke -- or maybe you are one of every five Americans with a disability. Look around you, and you'll find people of all abilities who are vital participants in their communities despite the barriers they may encounter.

Other Programs: Kitsap County Parent Coalition (KCPC)
In addition to our four core programs, Easterseals Washington operates the Kitsap County Parent Coalition (KCPC). The Coalition provides education, advocacy and referrals to help people with developmental disabilities get the support and services they need to improve their lives. Our Parent Coalition Coordinator arranges regular coalition meetings with special guest speakers and prepares newsletters and alerts on issues important to the disability community. KCPC provides more than support to people with disabilities, it strengthens their families as well, providing parent mentoring for caregivers and volunteer advocates for special education issues.
