Our Vision for Early Learning

The Shoreline Public Schools Early Learning vision is to eliminate the opportunity gap by optimizing the foundational early learning years in an inclusive, equitable community where every child belongs and is supported in developing friendships and becoming a lifelong learner.

Our mission is to provide high quality early learning experiences to all Shoreline and Lake Forest Park preschool aged children.

Our mission prioritizes:

  • Underserved populations
  • Inclusive learning 
  • Culturally responsive teaching
  • Working together with all families
