On Monday, Mayor Murray announced the first 14 providers of the Seattle Preschool Program, including several in the Beacon Hill area serving the attendance areas of Dearborn Park, Maple, Beacon International and Kimball elementary schools.

Enrollment for the program is opening now. All 4-year-olds in the city (regardless of income level) are eligible to apply, as are 3-year-olds from households at 300% and below of the Federal poverty line.

  1. Unfortunately there are only 85 slots for new children in these programs. All the rest of the space is taken by children who were already enrolled with the providers.

    I thought this was a new preschool program for children not already benefitting from early childhood education, but I was very much mistaken.
