More Information
Shoreline Community College
offers a unique parent education program that consists of a child-centered preschool laboratory setting and adult-centered lectures and discussion groups.

In the preschool classroom laboratory, parents become active partners in their child's education. Research supports the long-term benefits of this type of early parent involvement. Skilled Shoreline Community College faculty plan and implement learning opportunities for both parents and children. These learning experiences help to empower parents to build on their strengths.  The mission of the program is to support parents as they become directly involved in their children's education.

The cooperative preschool programs provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.

Parents pay a monthly tuition to their child's cooperative preschool. In addition, parents pay a minimal tuition to the college. As parent education program students at Shoreline Community College, they earn college credits each quarter.

* Panel discusses “educational enhancement during a time of economic distress.”

Randy Dorn, the newly elected Washington State Superintendent of
Public Instruction, will lead a panel discussion with the community about “educational enhancement during a time of economic distress.”   Others
on the panel will be Tom Mesaros, President/CEO of The Alford Group, one
of the five largest fund raising consulting firms in the U.S., and Frank Minton, nationally prominent executive in planned giving and endowment programs. 
The event is free and open to the public, and will be held in the Shoreline photo_1[1].jpg
of the Shoreline Conference Center on January 29, 2009 beginning at 7:00 p.m.

“We’re thrilled to launch this discussion and to have these prominent officials help guide our community with this issue,” says Ken Noreen, a retired educator and Founding Chairman of the Shoreline Education Alliance.  “Other than basic personal safety, there is no greater duty we have to our children than to provide them the best possible education, from early learning right up through trade schools and college.  We hope that everyone interested in education will turn out for this meeting.  The economy is forcing some very tough choices on us that we need to discuss
with one another.”


The event is presented by the Shoreline Education Alliance and co-sponsored by Shoreline Public Schools and various Rotary clubs in the area. The Shoreline Education Alliance is a new program of the Education Committee of Forward Shoreline and is designed to bring education providers and consumers together to plan for the education needs of Shoreline for the next 25 years. This ongoing program includes both private and public schools, as well as citizens who understand that “education” is now a life-long learning process.
