Early learning prepares children for success in school
At the core of the proposed Families and Education Levy renewal is our goal that all students in Seattle will graduate from high school ready for college or a career. Our children deserve nothing less. If we are going to meet that challenge, we need to start at the beginning of a child’s life and provide them with comprehensive early learning programs. That’s why we are including in the new Levy an expansion of the programs and services that have been proven to help Seattle families prepare their children for success. We want to ensure that all children enter school with the social, emotional and academic skills they need to be successful. Read more about our Families and Education Levy investments in early learning programs here.
