The Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center will soon be home to 450 of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park's youngest learners.

The 55,000 square foot facility will house the District's tuition-based preschool, Head Start and Early Childhood Education programs.

It is currently under construction with an anticipated completion date of December 2018. The architect for this project is Mahlum Architects and contractor is BNBuilders. The total estimated project cost is $35,800,000. 

The Children's Center Preschool, Head Start and Early Childhood Education programs are currently located in temporary quarters at the Shoreline Center and will move into the new Early Learning Center this winter.

The Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center is located on the site of the old Children's Center, just south of Meridian Park Elementary, across Meridian from Ronald Bog and just south of the N 175th and Meridian intersection.

It was named for Seattle civil rights pioneer Edwin Pratt because of the efforts of Shoreline 4th grader Sarah Haycock. (see previous story)

This is wonderful! I saw a pic of the little girl who worked to have this named after Mr Pratt, and she was near a memorial for him. Where is the memorial located, and where are they building this Early Learning Center?

We have to love the children they are our future and we must not destroy their visions with our own distorted visions as adults. Children do not see color or is privy to racism until outside forces play an active role in the decision making. Hats off to the parents that teach their children the importance of humanity and equality.
