Hello. My name is Héctor Quiroga. I am a local attorney here in Spokane, Washington. Me and my wife both practice law out of this office and when we are here or in court, we have our children at Spokane Child Development Center.

That is a great facility to help your family care for your children and if you live in Spokane or Spokane Valley. We highly recommend them. Our children sometimes are not very happy when we are going to pick them up because they have so much fun doing different activities. They love the staff there. They feel connected to them. It feels very much like that like a family as opposed of very sterile facility, we love like that.

There is nothing else I can say. That is a wonderful facility and I like you to check them out and check out. I do think they are perhaps the best in the area. Please contact them and check them out and I am sure that you are making a great choice for your child.

Spokane Child Development Center has been my family’s child care center since August 2008. When we came to SCDC, my older son had been in 3 day cares and with 5 nannies! He was less than 3 years old and I was a discouraged parent.

I was referred by a friend whose child had attended Spokane Child Development Center for several years and I was impressed by the educational curriculum offered. I was hopeful and moved my family into the area so that my children would be able to attend SCDC. My younger son, who has attended since infancy, was in need of services offered by Children FIRST. the opportunity to have my son’s therapy needs met while in child care was a blessing beyond belief.

My children have individual relationships with each of the staff members and the love friendships and activities that SCDC offers. I appreciate the positive social skills that my boys have learned at SCDC with encouragement from staff.

At the different stages of my sons’ development, SCDC has helped me troubleshoot positive approaches in best meeting my children’s needs. Vicki and the entire staff have always been willing to support my parenting strategies, share their experiences of my children, and help my children meet their goals.

Not only has Spokane Child Development Center offered a safe and educational environment for my children while I work, they have provided an external support system for our family.

The most important piece of choosing a care provider for my family has been knowing that my kids feel safe and can trust their teachers and environment. This has been absolutely and consistently fulfilled by the staff at SCDC.

I am so grateful to have found a child care center whose owner and staff places the same values on safety, trust, education, individualism, social and overall well being for my boys as I do.”

~Devin Commins
Mother of Nathan (6 yrs old) and Clayton (3 yrs old)

SCDC provides a loving and nurturing environment that promotes healthy social and physical development. Watching our daughter not only grow, but thrive in this environment has been truly amazing. It is obvious the teachers love what they do, which makes me all the more confident that she is in good hands. I value the structure of the center. I like knowing what my child is doing everyday. Knowing all the little details about what she had for lunch, what songs she sang, and what crafts she made, helps me feel like I was a part of her day. My daughter loves song-time/ circle time and the teachers. Everyday she runs through the list of teachers. “I can’t wait to see…..Sammi, Dina, Yvette.” I love that she gets excited to go to school.”

“The most important benefit of Spokane Child Development Center is the quality of care that my child receives. I feel like my child has learned a lot from the staff like how to be fair and care about other people. I also appreciate the curriculum. My child’s Kindergarten teacher said that she could tell that she was in a quality child care because she was more prepared. My daughter most appreciates the friendships that she has made at SCDC.”
