Kindering to open a fourth location in Redmond

Kindering in the Together Center opens this spring.

Kindering recently announced it is launching its third satellite campus in Redmond this spring.

The need for Kindering’s early intervention services rose in 2018, leading the nonprofit to seek out more physical space to house staff and programs to continue serving all children and families.

Thousands of children have been brought through Kindering’s doors since being founded. In 2014, the organization was pressed to open a satellite campus in Bothell and a second campus in Renton in 2017. The expansions help refine the agency’s vision to maximize support for families and removing barriers to service.

Kindering is a nonprofit organization that provides early intervention services to infants and children who have special needs or are at risk, as well as their families. The organization was founded in 1962 by five young Eastside mothers of children with special needs.

The addition of a campus in Redmond will help the organization move closer to the strategic goal of reaching 10,000 infants and children with disabilities and their families per year by 2022.

Redmond campus program manager, Katie O’Brien stated in a press release that she is excited about Kindering’s new location.

“We are so excited to be expanding Kindering in a rapidly growing area,” she said in the release. “We will be partnering with the Together Center to meet the diverse needs of children and families in Redmond.”

O’Brien said the new campus will serve around 150 children in the Redmond area. The staff will provide home visits to provide early interventions for children from birth to 3 years old. Kindering Redmond will also provide developmental evaluations and space for one-on-one therapies and supports.

“[We are] anticipating opening [the] campus in Redmond,” O’Brien said. “We will be able to grow and serve larger amounts of children.”

The new campus will be located in the Together Center complex on 16225 NE 87th St. in downtown Redmond.

O’Brien added she is excited to see what partnerships will blossom from being in the Together Center complex.
