SUMMARY

The Department of Education and Early Learning (DEEL) is seeking to select an early learning provider to operate four (4) Seattle Preschool Program (SPP) classrooms at the Miller Annex Preschool Center. The selected provider will:

  • Enter into an occupancy agreement with Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) for 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years. The occupancy agreement will begin on January 1, 2018 and end on June 30, 2019.
  • For the 2017-18 school year, establish a preschool program that serves 40 children in two classrooms with the service period from January to August of 2018.
  • For the 2018-19 school year, establish a preschool program that serves 80 children in four classrooms.

The Miller Annex Preschool Center is intended to be a high-quality preschool center that will operate within the Seattle Preschool Program system. The Miller Annex will serve a geographically underserved area of Seattle. To that end, DEEL is looking to partner with an early learning organization that has the capacity to build a high-quality program and a vision for how to engage with local community.
