Mayor Harrell kicks off application period for 2022-23 Seattle Preschool Program

Mayor Bruce Harrell and partners announce the opening of applications for the City's award-winning Seattle Preschool Program (SPP) for the 2022-2023 school year. This year, SPP will expand with seven additional classrooms and one Family Child Care Hub to provide 144 additional seats to Seattle three- and four-year-olds. Two of the new classrooms will offer dual-language programming and two will offer SPP Plus, which provides inclusive programming for children with disabilities. A full list of programs and application materials is available at, where in-language applications are also available. Families who need language assistance to complete the application process can contact DEEL at 206-386-1050 or email

SPP provides free tuition for most Seattle families who apply, with rates calculated based on household income and family size in order to advance educational equity and reduce race-based opportunity gaps in kindergarten readiness.  

Speakers and attendees include:

Mayor Bruce Harrell, City of Seattle

Dwane Chappelle, Seattle Department of Education and Early Learning

Susan Yang, Denise Louie Education Center
