Our childcare center has educated hundreds of children since 1997, and was founded by Liz Fisher, a parent of three wonderful children. Liz rented the old cannery buildings at the Semiahmoo Park until 2004 when she purchased the land for the center on Legion Drive.  She is a long time educator and has a BA in Elementary Education and many credit hours in Early Childhood Education.  We are constantly improving and making innovations to our program. At Semiahmoo Kids Kamp we remain committed to bringing the highest quality early childhood education and care to our children and their families. We regularly update our curricula to align with national and state accreditation standards and have developed new enrichment programs in music, sign, art and Spanish.  
We have several family and community events throughout the year.

We then walk your child to the end of the driveway to catch the school bus. 

Our after school program fills that critical time after school for working parents and their children. They get to spend time with friends and enjoy activities that are relevant to school-age interests. 

To make it easy for your family's schedule, our school-age program also aligns with school calendars to provide a fun-filled day  during holidays, teacher in-service days and other school breaks.

The program is directed by a certified teacher and an assistant.  Our staff is chosen  for their experience and education, as well as commitment to children and life-long learning.
