Our Story

What We’re All About

In 1970, Primm Day Care Center was established by Rev. and Mrs. Edward N. Smith Jr. and the members of Primm Tabernacle AME Church.  Friends of Primm at the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church of Mercer Island also assisted.  Until 1975, the center was licensed for 21 children from ages two and a half to twelve years when a second site was purchased on Rainier Avenue South.  This expanded our services to care for 28 additional children.

In 1977, the center relocated to its present location and is now licensed for 92 children, from toddlers to pre-adolescent age.  Donations of services and equipment have come from many sources:  the City's Department of Human Resources, the Boeing Employees Good Neighbor Fund, board members and many friends.  They have provided us the opportunity to serve many families through the years.
