Rep. Ruth Kagi
Shoreline Christian School is hosting Rep. Ruth Kagi for a conversation about early childhood education on March 14th at 10am.

Shoreline Christian School, working in conjunction with the Washington Federation of Independent Schools, invites educators, administrators and parents to meet with Washington State Representative Ruth Kagi on Saturday, March 14, at 10am in the gym at Shoreline Christian School, 2400 NE 147th St, Shoreline.

Representative Kagi is recognized as a national leader in early learning and currently is Chair of the House Early Learning and Human Services Committee in Olympia. Working with Senator Litzow, Representative Kagi has recently introduced two bills (HB 1491 and SB 5452) that have become known as “The Early Start Act.” These bills are focused on developing more effective childcares and preschools within our state.

Representative Kagi will share her vision for Early Learning and to help clarify where and how private childcares and preschools can be a part of that vision. She will address questions like, where do private childcares and preschools fit with the Early Achievers programs? Will preschools and child cares be required to participate in the Early Achievers program or accreditation? Is the route to Early Achievers set or is it a moving target? How are the kindergarten readiness benchmarks being developed, and how will they be measured?

Representative Kagi has offered to speak for approximately 20 – 30 minutes followed by 30 minutes of questions. There will be a brief reception afterwards with light refreshments available.

Shoreline Christian School has been helping students develop their unique, God-given gifts and abilities in Shoreline and north Seattle for over 60 years. Founded in 1952, SCS partners with parents and churches to provide an academically rigorous program grounded in Christian faith for children from preschool through grade 12. Students at SCS have the opportunity to take art, music, and advanced math and science courses.
