Kindering was founded in 1962 by five mothers of children with disabilities and has grown into the largest Early Intervention center serving children birth-to-three in the Pacific Northwest. We offer a full range of physical, occupational, and speech therapies; provide infant mental health services; and have conceived and implemented a range of therapies and interventions for children at-risk. We know 85% of brain development occurs during the first three years of life – giving us a perilously short window to deliver services that will help these fragile young children reach their fullest potential. Each year, Kindering helps a growing number of infants and young children in King and Snohomish counties – 4,150 in 2016 – and your support is vital to ensuring we are able to help every child and family in need of our services.
The video below is a the presentation of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Award given to Mimi Siegel, Executive Director of the King County branch of Kindering in December 2016, It describes services provided and the importance of the organization.
A grant was provided by Sammamish Rotary in the Fall of 2017 to fund their early intervention programs.
