Welcome to Totem Lake KinderCare! We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our center. Our center is a Nationally Accredited Center that is dedicated to nurturing and building a strong foundation for your child's lifelong learning.

Throughout the day, students at Totem Lake work in groups and as individuals to problem-solve and build self-esteem.

We host field days, festivals, and various other fun events, which brings everyone together and allows families to enjoy their child(ren)'s education firsthand. - Kathaleen DeBarr, Center Director
