Our Owner....

Tara Stivers holds a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education, and along with teaching in the public school system, she has worked with students of all ages for more than 25 years. After noticing a lack of quality early learning programs in the community,  Tara and her husband Jon, opened The Country Playhouse Learning Center in 2006 to serve students ages 4 weeks to 5 years of age. Later, as the community grew, so did the need for quality school age programs, and in 2012, The Country Playhouse Club opened it's doors. In 2018, the Preschool was opened, and in 2019, our largest school, the Academy, opened in Maple Valley. We have been blessed with being able to fill a much-needed void in the community for the past 17 years, and look forward to many more years of educating the amazing youth in our great city of Enumclaw and the surrounding cities on the plateau.

At The Country Playhouse Learning Center, we strive to create an engaging environment that promotes both individual and group learning and development. Children learn in a variety ways, and we feel it is necessary for them to have the proper tools that will lead to new experiences, and help to enhance their abilities and strengths even further. Learning requires proper guidance, active thinking and hands-on activities that leads to experiencing first hand about the world we live in. A child that is absorbed in the positive components of life has little time to focus on the negatives.

We want our children to grow up with the knowledge that they can make a positive difference in their life, as well as in the lives of others around them. It is our goal as educators and role models to collaborate and partner with our families to help each child achieve his/her own level of excellence. This partnership means that our faculty will work to project the most positive influence possible, and we expect the same for students at home.

We all want the best for our children; they are our future, and we must never lose sight of that fact. As a community of educators and parents, we need to work together to make that future as bright as it possibly can be; for each and every child.
