In August of 2010, a group of preschool owners and directors began meeting in West Seattle.  It quickly became apparent that our mission was two-fold.  First, we wanted to casually meet and network to share ideas and encouragement with those in our industry.  Secondly, we wanted to form an association to bring together preschool families and preschool educators to promote high-quality preschool programs.  We want opportunities to network with other educators in order to support each other and share resources.  We come together to mentor one another for the betterment of our preschool community.  We make ourselves available as resources to meet the needs in our community of learners.  We strive to be an example of a community coming together in early childhood excellence.
