Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) is supporting Seattle, WA’s Proposition, the Families, Education, Preschool and Promise Levy! Prop 1 will expand the successful Seattle Preschool Program by 1,000 new slots annually, providing high-quality preschool to kids at no or low cost.
We’re Empowering Citizens of Washington to Be the Voice for Kids
The voters in Washington state overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.
When the Seattle City Council began exploring a tax on sweetened beverages in early 2017, we immediately
mobilized a successful campaign to ensure that resulting revenue would support early learning programs.
We also mobilized our online supporters to support expanded funding for the Washington Early Childhood
Education and Assistance Program and Working Connections Child Care subsidies, which will help more
families keep or get access to high-quality early learning programs.

No matter what happens on Election Day, we want the next Congress to make investing in high-quality early childhood education a priority. Sign the petition to tell the next Congress that early education programs transform children’s lives.
