About First Flight
First Flight Child Care Center is privately owned company that has operated for Walla Walla Community College since 1989. Owners Bill and Eileen Wolford are highly trained educators who work with their staff and children to provide the best learning experience possible in a safe and healthy environment.
Developmentally appropriate curriculum and practices are used for young children. Activities are implemented with attention to the different needs, interests, and developmental levels of individual children. Although groupings are generally based on the child's age, groupings are flexible and a child may be moved from one group to another to meet special needs. All but the youngest group intermingles freely throughout the school day according to individual interests, needs, differences, and capabilities.
All full time staff members are experienced early childhood educators. They participate in a continuous program of in-service educational studies for professional advancement in order to remain alert to the ever-changing needs of today's families and to the finding of current research.
The center is open to all children, ages six weeks to six years (not already enrolled in kindergarten).
