You’re invited to the Learning Communities Foundation’s 2nd Annual Fundraising Breakfast!

You're invited to join PSESD Learning Communities Foundation for our 2nd annual fundraising breakfast! Come and join us to learn more about our work, and how you can support our mission of all children having access to quality early education. This year our breakfast will be held virtually on December 10th, from 7:00-8:00 AM. 

We are strong and firm believers in the power of early learning to change a child’s life, and the unique role that Educare in Seattle and Educare across the country have played in the past decade in creating high quality preschool education for ALL children. We are raising funds to support Educare Seattle and our Emergency Fund that meets needs of families and children.  

Together, we are building up and educating the next generation.  It is important work, the most important work we can do. It is a true pleasure and honor to share in the work with you.
