About Us

Providing early childhood education and nurturing to 200 Treasure Valley children daily.

Giraffe Laugh is a local nonprofit located in Boise, Idaho that provides early childhood education and nurturing to over 200 Treasure Valley children daily by ensuring school readiness, empowering families, and building strong futures. Currently, we have four child care centers in the Boise area serving children from 6 weeks old to third grade. Although we are serving hundreds of kids and their families every day, we have over 550 kids on our waiting list. Our vision is that someday every child in the Treasure Valley has access to quality early childhood education, so they are eager and prepared for Kindergarten, giving them a brighter future.

Our Preschool. Our Family. Our Community.

We have a vision that every child in the Treasure Valley has access to quality early childhood education. That all parents are empowered and supported through the early years of parenthood and we know that by doing these things we are building strong futures every day in our work.


 

 


Early Education

 

When children are born their brains are 25% developed and by the time they leave our program and enter kindergarten their brain is 90% developed. The biggest time of growth occurs during the first 5 years.

 

Food Pantry

1 in 6 children go to bed hungry in Idaho every night. Through our partnership with the Idaho Foodbank, Giraffe Laugh provides food pantries at all of our sites for families in need to access every day.

 

Summer School Age Program

More than half of the achievement gap between lower and higher income youth can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities. Giraffe Laugh aims to bridge this gap with our K-6th grade summer program.

 

Parent Education

3600 children are abused and neglected in Idaho every year. When our parents are empowered and given information, support in times of need, and feel connected, they are less likely to abuse or neglect their children.

 

Giraffe Laugh Garden City Preschool

Giraffe Laugh has partnered with the Idaho Association for the Education of Young Children to bring a much needed half-day preschool program to the residents of Garden City located in the Boys and Girls Club.


We can see the future from here!

Giraffe Laugh, a local nonprofit, provides early childhood education and nurturing to 200 Treasure Valley children daily, by ensuring school readiness, empowering families, and building strong futures.

Giraffe Laugh has three full time centers serving children from 6 weeks to 6 years old. In addition to the three full time centers, Giraffe Laugh has a half day preschool program (Giraffe Laugh Garden City Preschool) and a summer program that serves school age children.
