Life-changing therapies and interventions at Kindering

Since 1962, Kindering has been providing life-changing interventions and therapies for infants and young children with disabilities and their families. Located in the Crossroads neighborhood of Bellevue, Washington, Kindering is at the heart of the rapidly growing Greater Eastside of Seattle. The depth and scope of services provided at Kindering is unmatched. Our core – Early Intervention – helps 2,000 children with disabilities reach critical developmental milestones each year. Additionally, we offer specialized therapies for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, children in foster care, consultation for local childcare centers and other wrap-around programs support families, siblings and caregivers of disabled children. But undoubtedly, according to team members past and present, the best part about a career at Kindering is the people. Our leadership is committed to helping you build your skills through experience and professional development, and we work to foster an environment of growth and collaboration. You will not only gain firsthand experience serving diverse populations, but work closely with Kindering therapists and educators – who bring decades of experience and knowledge to their respective fields. Best of all, you will see the impact of your work: 99% of Kindering children make progress in two or more skill areas; 76% narrow the gap with typically developing peers; and 46% no longer qualify for special education upon graduation from Kindering. Crossroads is situated near downtown Bellevue and three major thoroughfares (I-90, I-405 and SR-520), with quick access to Seattle as well as all points North, South, and East. We are also nearby many major bus routes, and the future East Link Light Rail.

 

Founded by those we serve

Kindering was founded by five mothers of children with disabilities, and has grown alongside the community we serve. In addition to many longstanding partnerships with other community stewards such as Eastside Pathways, Kindering benefits from a solid reputation in the community. This is the result of decades of proven methods, and undeniable results for these fragile young children.

 

Why do our Team Members love Kindering?

  • Robust Mentorship and Training Programs
  • Evidence-based, Clinically Intensive Programs
  • Comprehensive Benefit Package
  • Leadership Training
  • Excellent Support and Resources for Your Success!
