From Seattle Times—A well-respected national organization recently gave Seattle’s preschool program a much deserved pat on the back.
The Seattle program has the highest quality among Pre-K programs in 40 large U.S. cities, according to a new report from the National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers University in partnership with nonprofit policy advocacy group CityHealth.
From Seattle Medium—For the second year in a row, the Seattle Preschool Program was awarded high honors by a national assessment of preschool programs. This national report assessed how the largest U.S. cities address health and well-being issues awarded honors for high-quality preschool programs, out of 40 programs across the country, only 5 programs receiving higher honors than the Seattle Preschool Program.
From Seattle Times—If Seattle’s preschool program continues to grow, it could soon be in the highest echelon of Pre-K programs in the country, according to a report released this week.
