    What is Launch?

    The Community Day School Association (CDSA) has been the onsite provider of before and after school child care here at Leschi for many years. We're excited to announce that CDSA is starting 2016 with a new "brand," including a new name (Launch) and a new logo. Watch for our new name and logo around the school, and visit our new website for more information about our organization.

    In the meantime, please know that nothing in our programs will change. CDSA/Launch children will have the same wonderful and dedicated teachers, the same curriculum, the same quality programs, and the same great experience they've always had. We look forward to our continued partnership with the Leschi community and hope that you are as happy with our new look as we are!

    Our Mission:

    Lead the charge to brilliant outcomes for the children of our community by ensuring equitable access to the highest quality learning and care.

    We are a small, local non-profit organization whose mission is to provide and advocate for quality childcare that enriches and nurtures all children, supporting their success in school and in life.

    Launch supports working families from all cultural and economic backgrounds. Families who enroll in our program enter a network of assistance that strengthens the community, while offering positive opportunities for their children.

    Our nine locations have deep and close relationships with Seattle Public Schools. This collaboration with the school district allows our staff to communicate and partner with teachers, ensuring what children learn in our before and after school programs complements and supports what they’re learning in the classroom.

    Launch administrative staff and teachers are passionate about preparing 21st century learners for school and life beyond school in a fun and nurturing environment. Focusing on social, emotional, and academic learning and growth, we’re leading the charge to brilliant outcomes for the children in our community.

    We invite families, donors, volunteers, and our community to learn how you can get involved in helping us prepare children for the future!
