The Helen Hicks Building-Tiny Tots Child Development Center / Helen Hicks Building Seattle, WA. Named for Helen Hicks, a pioneer in creating childcare environments in Seattle and founder of Tiny Tots, the child-care center engages state-of-the-art ideas about child development and education. From playful designs for cabinets, selection of bright, fun colors, and construction administration, this is a highly functional building with a playful attitude that also meets the rigorous code requirements for childcare facilities. The Tiny Tots organization is delighted with their building, and has gone on to create outdoor seating and a play area with additional grants from community supporters. Established in 1969, Tiny Tots Development Center (TTDC) provides childcare services, preschool, and early childhood education in a nurturing environment acknowledging cultural diversity. Serving pre-school and school age children, the bright new Helen Hicks Building opened in 2010, one of four Tiny Tots sites in South Seattle. The building was supported by a grant from the Rainier Valley Development Association, and also received the “Green Safe” designation from King County. Through our hard work and diligence we have celebrated 47 years in the Rainier Beach / Rainier Valley Community.
