Dear Neighborhood House,

Happy October!   

Did you know the 2021 General Election is less than five weeks away? Happening on Tuesday, November 2, there are many important local measures and candidates on this year’s ballot. This past Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day – a day to raise awareness about voting and registering, which is the process of signing up to vote. Learn more about how to register in Washington here and do not forget to vote if you are able to!

Early Childhood Education

Neighborhood House has been providing high quality early childhood education programs for decades and was one of the first Head Start preschool providers in the Northwest region. Today we offer a full range of early-childhood education programs for low-income families from expectant parents to those with children birth to 5 years old. We focus on providing culturally appropriate services to all enrolled families, many of whom are recent refugees and immigrants.

Want your child to listen better?  

This story will help your child stay safe, in less trouble and learn more. Listening and paying attention are different and mean more than do as we told.

Movement / Play

Stop Drop and Roll

With: Tommy Flames


The Stop-Drop-and-Roll drill is loved by all kids. Have a little fun with your family and demonstrate what not to do if their clothing were to catch on fire. Let everybody at home practice this drill.


Talk about why it is important to stay low if a room or hallway is full of smoke.

Use a giant piece of cloth or blanket.

Ask your kids to each grab a corner of the fabric and wave it around.

The other kids can take turn staying low and crawling under the ‘smoke’.
