Our Sunshine & Rainbows Child Development Center...

Provides a childcare setting that surpasses most daycare standards by contributing a full-service agency for parents and families in our Forks, WA community. Our childcare employees are trained and qualified to provide services in Behavior Management, Developmental Therapy, and Early Childhood Education while maintaining a preschool-like environment all day long.

Childcare is something needed in every community and in this small one, Concerned Citizens operates the only center-based program in the city. Families are trying to juggle the challenges of working, shuffling family needs, and after-school activities. Our Sunshine and Rainbows Childcare Center strives to provide a well-rounded curriculum that addresses all the needs of the child and family.

Referrals for specialized childcare situations come to the Center from the Department of Social and Health, Developmental Disabilities, Child Protective Services, doctors, and hospitals from as far away as Seattle.

We will need current shot records and the date of the child’s last doctor’s visit as well as any phone numbers of people who you approve to pick up your child and signed permission for field trips.
