Board of Directors

Redmond Toddler Group is a non profit organization sponsored by Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech).  We have a board of directors who work together to supervise activities in the organization.  Each class also has a parent leader who takes on the role of helping and guiding their class by collecting tuition, setting up playdates and helping the teacher pass along important information.  We work together with our teachers and students of the RTG community to help provide our parents with enhanced parenting skills, and by providing our toddlers with a fun and safe environment to grow and socialize.

If you’re interested in joining the board or becoming a parent leader in your classroom,  please contact your teachers!

We have elected our Board of Directors for 2019-2020!
