Location of Volunteer Position:

Join us in our play-based preschool classrooms, and give children more opportunities to interact, receive guidance, and have one-on-one time. As a volunteer, you will be there to spend time with the kids, talk to them, play with them, read to them. You may also assist with learning stations, clean-up and prep work. Combined with our low student to teacher ratio, volunteers can make a big difference in the classroom.
Research shows that children who attend preschool have a 29% higher chance of graduating high school and will earn 33% higher salaries than their peers who do not attend preschool. That is just one reason that Encompass runs the only NAEYC-accredited preschool in Snoqualmie Valley.
Our classrooms are play-based, focusing on building the cognitive, social-emotional, and physical skills that will set children up for school success. Because outdoor play and exploration is vital to brain development, our students play outside every day. Our evidence-based preschool curriculum focuses not only on academic skills, but also on what we know is paramount: social-emotional health.
As a volunteer, you will commit to 3 hours each visit, at least 3 times per month. Depending on your schedule and classroom, the shifts are 12:15-3:15pm, 1-4pm, or 9am-12pm at our Early Learning Center in North Bend. You don’t need to have prior experience in a classroom, knowledge of child development, or any other experience except a willingness to connect with children.
