About

Enjoy. Nurture. Evolve. Advance.

 

Mission

Dedicated to providing a friendly and nurturing environment that is relaxed yet professional. We work to transfer the latest research into functional practice.  The primary goal is to support the development of a child in such a manner that he or she discovers the joy of learning and communicating.

About the Clinic

Susan Stewart and Kelley Flood met while working together at a mutual clinic. They then set up shop with other clinicians here in Lynnwood and spent ten years at that space building their private practices. In 2018, Susan, Kelley and Devin (Susan's employee) decided to embark on a new trajectory where they could develop parenting classes, a play school and establish themselves as a clinic that wants to promote and educate families and professionals about developmental approaches.
