Kids Way Before and After School Program


Dear Kids Way Child Care Family,  

Welcome!  Thank you for choosing Kids Way Before and After School program to care for your child/children while you are away.  Your child’s safety and well-being are our primary concerns.  Kids Way child care provides a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow and develop social skills. 

My Name is Arlene; I am the on-site coordinator for the program.  I am excited to start this new journey with you and your child/children.  I would like to share a little bit of my background.  I have been providing quality care for children for over 30 years.  I worked for several years as a director for a small hospital owned center in North Snohomish County, we provided care for children 6 weeks old through age 12 years old. From there I opened my own center in Arlington and was the director/pre-K teacher.  We provided care for children ages 1-year-old through school age, this was my journey for 20 years.  After many years of administrative work as well as working with the children, I decided it was time to devote myself to the “fun” part of the job, working with the children.  I come to Kids Way with many years of experience as well as my Associate in Technical Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. 

It is our goal to provide your child/children with a safe, quality environment where your child/children feel secure and accepted.  We hope to create an atmosphere of respect that promotes positive self-esteem, to recognize each child as a unique person with individual needs and interest and provide a range of activities accordingly.  We hope to give children opportunities to make choices among a wide range of developmentally appropriate activities, to develop self-control, independence and sense of purpose.  We will provide designated time for homework, with assistance from staff.  We will work as a team with parents, maintaining open communication and mutual support. We will meet or exceed the state-licensing requirements to ensure your child/children receive the highest quality of child care. 

I am looking forward to developing a relationship with you and your child/children that will ensure your child feels safe, encouraged and loved  

Warmest Regard 
Arlene Jones
