Helping children become life long learners.

Snoqualmie Ridge Early Learning CenterSnoqualmie Ridge Early Learning Center (SRELC) is a private school offering high quality part-time and full-time programs to Infants through Kindergarten. The school serves over 150 children and families each school year throughout Snoqualmie Valley.  The school was established in 2006 and is family owned and operated by Business Manager, Ken Staude and Center Director, Lynn Staude.  

“Our goal is for children to become life long learners.  With an emphasis toward building this characteristic, SRELC will create strong relationships between school, families and children through open lines of communication”.  – Lynn Staude

The faculty of SRELC is committed to providing children and families the highest quality of care and education.   SRELC has an excellent low faculty turnover rate. The majority of teachers  started when the school originally opened in 2006, and are still with the school.  Combining the faculty’s educational and annual contract requirements the professionalism and dedication of the teachers is second to none. We offer far more than just child care.

Snoqualmie Ridge Early Learning Center's mission is to render superb care and excellent education to young children through hands on discovery and age appropriate experiences.  Young children are naturally creative and receptive.  SRELC will strive to nurture and encourage these qualities in our students and provide a stimulating, enriching environment where children will be guided to develop socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically to their fullest potential.

We have had children enrolled in this school for 4 years and have been very happy with their care and education. They have an amazing group of teachers and administrators who clearly love what they do and the children that they work with. They especially have great pre-k and kinder curriculums that are far ahead of many other programs. The only think we don't like is that it ends in kindergarten and wish our kids could continue longer.  - Google Places

I can't imagine a better setting for our two sons.The teachers and staff and very friendly and nurturing. I feel very confident dropping them off in the morning knowing that they are in a warm, stimulating environment. They also have wonderful family events. I highly recommend SRELC!!! Many people do, which is why it is so hard to get into. ;) – Yahoo.com

Our kids LOVE coming to SRELC. The staff is very caring and very interested in our kids' education and development! Can't say enough good things about SRELC!
