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. 

We hold fundraisers 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. 

This year's capital campaign is the construction of a learning garden playspace for our students, dedicated to one of our founding board members, Meredith Owens Reed. It is being funded through private donations with grant assistance from the Wend Foundation and the NW Center for the Retention and Expansion of Childcare. Our goal is to have it completed by May 2022.

The Embodiment of the Arts

Music, dance and media art are all incorporated into our daily routines at Skagit Art Preschool.  We recognize the immense need for movement, creativity and expression in a child's development and seek to facilitate that throughout our programs.
