We are ChildStrive
(formerly Little Red School House)
Founded by parents and the South Snohomish County Exchange Club in 1963, ChildStrive is a community-based service provider for families with children, ages birth to three who have developmental disabilities, developmental delays, or are at risk of falling behind their peers.
Our success stems from a foundational belief in family empowerment and a strength-based intervention model that maximizes each child's abilities so that they can succeed in school and in life.
ChildStrive's highly qualified Occupational and Physical Therapists, Speech and Language Pathologists, Special Educators, Nurses and Counselors create customized family service plans that ensure each family member is an equal member of the early intervention team. We use a hands-on coaching model. Our staff support and empower parents, enhancing their capacity to meet the special needs of their infants and toddlers, in the child's natural learning environments – at home, at their child care center, or in other community settings.
After 50 successful years of changing lives and optimizing development for infants and toddlers with special needs, we look forward to continuing this important work, and making a deep and lasting impact on the families in our community.
