About Redmond Toddler Group

Redmond Toddler Parent Education Cooperative is a learning experience you and your child will treasure together.

Redmond Toddler Group (RTG) is sponsored by Lake Washington Institute of Technology’s Parent Education Department.  RTG offers support and education for parents while providing enriching playtime classes for children. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to laugh, learn, play and make friends. The children might know Redmond Toddler Group as “Toby School” because of our mascot, Toby, a cuddly koala bear. Toby leads the children in song and dance during circle time, and gives them a special good-bye at the end of every class.

We are located at: 17725 NE 65th St Suite A100, Redmond, WA 98052


We offer different sets of classes; Pre-Toddler (0-6 months and 6-12 months), and Toddler (12-23 months, 21-27 months, and 24-36 months), and Family (12-36 months) . Each class focuses on specific needs for parents and children of those ages. There is time for free-play, art, music, circle time, snack and parent education. In our infant classes, parent-ed is in the same room so you can stay close to your little one. In our Toddler classes, parent-ed is in a room just off the play area so that kids can start to gain a bit of independence.


We have hundreds of books and videos in our Library (both parent-education and children’s titles) that you may check out. Each month you will also have the chance to purchase top quality books through our Scholastic Book Program and to hear top-rated speakers from around the Puget Sound area. We’re also proud of the fact that we belong to the Organization for Parent Education, a state-wide group that keeps us informed of all the state-wide legislative activity pertaining to parenting and family issues.


Each Spring we hold a carnival to raise funds for the following school year and we ask each parent involved in our programs to help out. This is a fun event that our community really enjoys.
