Launch - formerly known as Community Day School Association (CDSA) - is dedicated to ensuring a brilliant start for all children. Through our preschool, before & afterschool and summer programs, we provide equitable access to the highest-quality learning and care in a safe, enriching environment that prepares children for success in school and life. Our programs serve a diverse group of over 1,350 children ages 3-12 and are located on-site in 9 Seattle public schools. Drawing on 40 years of experience, we serve as a proven model of effective programming and a passionate advocate for children, families and communities. Please see our website at www.launchlearning.org to learn more about our programs.
All six of our preschool programs have been awarded a Quality Level of Excellence rating by Early Achievers, Washington State’s quality rating and improvement system for early learning programs. Five of our preschools are part of the Seattle Preschool Program. Our highly skilled and well trained teams of teachers, many of whom are bilingual, help children succeed in school and in life. Our whole-child approach is tailored to individual needs and strengths, including the services and support that young learners need to blossom.
