Parent Education

Giraffe Laugh provides high-quality education for children 6 weeks through the third grade.

We envision educational justice where every child has an enriched environment to thrive.

Parents and guardians are the most important adult in a child’s life and their first teacher. When we enroll a child, we enroll a family. Parenting is not easy and when adults in a family feel connected, supported and have information on their journey, they are empowered and the entire family is strengthened.

Steps to empowering families:

  • Giraffe Laugh holds annual parent & teacher conferences in the fall to talk about the development of their child(ren). Even infants are screened for developmental milestones. Conferences are a wonderful way to learn about early childhood development and what is “typical” but also a means to partner with parents in creating goals for each child.
  • Giraffe Laugh works with other organizations to provide parenting information and classes through our monthly newsletter but also classes or workshops that are held throughout the year.
  • Families are asked to contribute 20 hours of volunteer time each year. When adults in a child’s life are involved in their school they actually perform better and the family feels more welcome and empowered.

We can see the future from here!

Giraffe Laugh, a local nonprofit, provides early childhood education and nurturing to 200 Treasure Valley children daily, by ensuring school readiness, empowering families, and building strong futures.

Giraffe Laugh has three full time centers serving children from 6 weeks to 6 years old. In addition to the three full time centers, Giraffe Laugh has a half day preschool program (Giraffe Laugh Garden City Preschool) and a summer program that serves school age children.
