Creating Meaningful Experiences
Totem Lake Children's Academy is an early childhood education center offering full-day enrichment programs for children ages 6 weeks through 5 years.
Located in the Totem Lake area of Kirkland, our new facility features 10 carefully and deliberated designed classrooms, spacious indoor gym and nature-rich, outdoor exploration area.
We implement emergent curriculum across all classrooms. Rooted in years of proven research, our curriculum focuses on creating opportunities for children to develop meaningful experiences through self-directed play and hands-on learning. Our teachers do not create unilateral lesson plans, but instead adapt them to reflect student interests and passions. All the while, classroom activities align with developmentally appropriate learning objectives set forth by The Creative Curriculum®.
We are excited that you have chosen to explore our school website. The website briefly introduces you to our management team, teaching philosophy and school programs, but we believe the best way to experience our school is to schedule a tour, meet our staff and ask a lot of questions. Our admissions team is only a phone call away, and we look forward to meeting you and your child!
The first five years —and especially the first three—of a child’s life are the most important. They shape the brain's organization, development, and functioning throughout life.
