Little Star works with several key partners to ensure that our services meet the needs of children and families in the Methow Valley. In 2015, the Methow Valley School District, Room One and Little Star School formed an Early Childhood Education Steering Committee to lay a path into the future for accessible, quality childcare in the Methow Valley.
In response to an assessment by the committee, that documented a dramatic need for expanded childcare options in our community, Little Star, Room One and TwispWorks partnered and launched the Little Star South Collaborative and opened the doors to Little Star Twisp in October 2017. The partnership strives to meet the childcare needs of working families across the socio-economic spectrum.
Little Star provides its high-quality Montessori childcare program to infants and toddlers in Twisp, serving four infants and 12 toddlers daily. Our inclusive, supportive and compassionate approach creates a learning environment where our valley’s children can flourish.
Room One provides wrap-around family support services and partners with Little Star to provide parenting resources, health and nutrition services and education, and expanded access to financial aid.
TwispWorks provides the home for the childcare center, a place where children and families are welcomed and community is nurtured.
We extend heartfelt thanks to our Methow Valley community for helping us build this valuable resource for families!
