Thrive Learning Center is a non-profit organization whose goal is to provide high-quality, accessible childcare in a safe and nurturing environment, enabling families to continue or obtain employment or to further their education in order to improve the economic stability of their family and the community in which they live.


We provide curriculum for each class, enabling each child to learn and develop at their age-appropriate level . Our schedules ensure that our daily plans give variety and cover activities that allow children to use varying skills.  They also learn social skills as well as developmental skills. We strive to provide and meet the needs of the whole child.


We provide musical experiences, warm interaction with others, exploring through directed playtime (indoors and out), learning new skills, sensory activities, and creative arts and crafts.  We also have an enclosed/fenced playground area for our outdoor activities.  



Thrive Learning Center is a well-child childcare center. This means that if your child is not feeling well, for any reason, you will need to find alternate care. One of our primary concerns is the control of communicable illness between children, as well as staff. All of our policies and guidelines related to outbreaks of communicable illness have been set in place with the help of state and local health officials and consultants. In order to protect our entire center, as well as your own child, we ask that parents assist us by not bringing their child if he/she has a contagious illness or exhibits any of the symptoms listed within our policy. ​ You can find our policy here.



We provide a safe environment for children as we meet all health and safety guidelines and are licensed and inspected annually by the City of Moscow as well as the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.  We are also participating in the Steps to Quality program through Idaho STARS, which furthers our training and education for all staff.


Our teachers are qualified by education and/or experience to work with young children.  All staff are required to have background checks and child-abuse record clearances.  They are also certified in First Aid and CPR and are licensed Daycare Providers.  Each staff member is also required to complete training with Idaho Stars and are licensed as a childcare provider through the City of Moscow.



To comply with the City of Moscow, each of our staff is allotted 12 points.  Infants are four points; 12 months through age two (walkers and toddlers) are two points; three and four-year-olds are one point; and five-year-olds are a 1/2 point.  


We are part of the CACFP food program and we provide two nutritious meals each day, along with an afternoon snack.

We are a step 4 site in Steps to Quality in the Idaho STARS Steps to Quality Program.
We use the CDC's Milestone Tracker  as well as Ages & Stages Questionnaires
to help us as well as our parents better understand each child’s skills and abilities, track and celebrate developmental milestones, and share development progress from ages 6months through 5 years.
