Post Alley Center
Welcome to Post Alley! The newest KidsCentre campus is located in Post Alley just under University Street. The center was acquired at the start of 2017 in an exciting opportunity to expand the KidsCentre family. We are so excited that we are able to offer more children quality care in downtown Seattle.
The Post Alley center is a tenant of the Harbor Steps Community, located in the heart of Seattle. All three towers within Harbor Steps have been upgraded to meet current earthquake codes. The building is reinforced with earthquake 'buttons' to strengthen each floor, and the mortar was fully upgraded. Harbor Steps employs security staff throughout the day to monitor the entire building and security officers conduct hourly safety checks throughout each sector of the building. Additionally, our neighborhood is included in the Downtown Seattle/ First Avenue Association Business Improvement Area and Metropolitan Improvement District, from whose security staff we can draw from at any time.
Post Alley uses HiMama!
HiMama is such a fantastic tool which has made communication between teachers and parents so much simpler, faster, and more fun! HiMama’s digital childcare daily reports solution was designed by educators to be so much quicker than the paper documentation method, leading to way more time with the kids! With HiMama, parents are supplied with relevant information specific to their child’s growth. Parents can easily access HiMama via smartphone or desktop computer making connections with their child’s teacher even easier.
Post Alley loves giving back!
KidsCentre loves to give back to charities and invest in the community, so we regularly donate to two charities through the year.
Every November, in the generous spirit of Thanksgiving, we participate in the YWCA's annual canned food drive. In 2016, we gave over 377 pounds of food to those in need! To bring out our competitive spirits, the class that donated the most got a movie party.
Every December, we put an Angel Tree up in the lobby, with wishes from local foster children who would otherwise receive no gifts. All 50 tags were taken, thanks to our generous families here at KidsCentre!
