The safety of our families and our staff is our highest priority. 

We realize that families are managing so many changing realities and are grateful for your patience as we work to navigate the complexities of operating our program during the COVID-19 pandemic. LWTG Teachers and Board of Directors are regularly reviewing guidance from our public health officials, Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), our local Public Health Department, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), LWTECH and local school districts, the Organization for Parenting Education Programs (OPEP), and other organizations to ascertain the most appropriate course of action. LWTG is working diligently to prioritize the safety of our families and staff while providing meaningful programming for all the families we serve. 

LWTG is now enrolling for the 2021-2022 year. Please stay tuned for updates as we await local policy announcement!

We are only a few weeks away from the start of another awesome school year at LWTG!

Now is a great time to begin prepping your little ones for class by doing some simple things at home like frequently washing hands and experimenting with wearing face masks.

Although they are not required for kids to attend LWTG, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) strongly recommends that children over the age of 2 wear masks when in a school setting.
Not sure how to introduce masks into your regular routine? Here are a few tips & tricks shared by other parents:

*  Make it fun! Let your kiddo pick out their own masks or personalize one by adding their own decorations. You can also familiarize them with a mask by placing the one on their favorite doll/stuffie. The more creative you can get, the better!

*  Get the right fit: If possible, try a few different mask designs to find the one with the best fit, making it as comfortable as possible. After all, a comfy face is a happy face!

*  Practice, Practice, Practice! Encourage them to try wearing a mask throughout the day, even if it’s only for a few minutes at a time, and model good mask-wearing behavior by sporting one yourself. They are likely to follow your lead.

We have so much fun stuff planned for you and your little ones this quarter – we can’t wait to get started!
