A school built on community values
Eastside Children’s Academy is a private early childhood educational school in Bellevue, Washington. The Academy encompasses the neighborhoods of Bellevue, Issaquah, Redmond, Kirkland and Seattle. We are a community filled with a diversity of cultures, religions, incomes, and languages. Its character has drawn from the community’s residents and provides a fun-filled, nurturing environment that is dedicated to preparing each child for the challenges of elementary school.
Eastside Children’s Academy is focused on offering a fun, loving, nurturing environment where infants and children, 6 weeks through Pre-Kindergarten, develop positive social skills. We provide all children the opportunity to learn about the world around them through age-appropriate play and integrated curricula.
ECA’s staff values a collaborative effort to best meet the needs of the families in our school. Each role may be different but they are intertwined and all play an essential part in achieving the goals of the program. Open-handed support from one another is a fundamental element for the well-being of our entire staff. Please feel free to ask your child’s teacher any questions when you are unsure or need assistance. As a team, we are willing to help.
Commonly, your director is available to help you with any questions or concerns regarding classroom program, specific children and families matters, behavior issues, scheduling, supervision, etc. She/he can also guide you to further information or community support when necessary.

易思达幼儿园的目标是确保每个孩子在快乐健康的环境下成长和学习新知识，从身体，心理，学术多层面帮助孩子们塑造健康的体格，树立健全的人格，以及建立知识体系。我们设立高质量的创新型双语课程，每个班级搭配中英文老师各一名，把两种语言同时融汇进入教学内容。其目的在于在孩子年幼的时候就开始为他们提供良好的机会去接触到不同的语言，感受不同的文化。每个班级日常的活动丰富多样，例如：音乐，舞蹈，绘画，手工，写字，数学，科学，烹饪等等。每周还有三项有趣的课程外的活动：Soccer, Webby Dance。 对于这三门课程，家长可以根据自己孩子的兴趣进行选择，报名参加。

"My daughter absolutely loves going to her new school. Prior to ECA, she would grab onto me, begging me not to leave her (which was very out of character for her). All we have to do now, is drive up to the entrance and she actually giggles with excitement. I no longer have the mom guilt being away from her, and have found that I am more relaxed at work knowing she is safe and thriving. I honestly can’t wait to see her continued growth and development, and am SO incredibly grateful we found ECA."
