A Little Word About

Skagit Art Preschool

Skagit Art Preschool was founded in 2016 and is a 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit in Mount Vernon, Washington.

While we are a secular program, we are generously housed within the education wing of St. Paul's Episcopal Church and have a wonderful working relationship with the vestry and church staff. 

We serve primarily working families and accept DSHS and WCC in addition to private pay funding.  We are an inclusive school and welcome a very diverse group of families within our classrooms, and have a strict non-discrimination policy. 

Fundraisers are held throughout the year in order to subsidize our tuition costs and keep them affordable for families while still providing a living wage to our employees. 

We recently finished construction of a learning garden play space for our students, dedicated to one of our founding board members, Meredith Owens Reed. It was funded through private donations with grant assistance from the Wend Foundation and the NW Center for the Retention and Expansion of Childcare.
