About Us

We believe that each child is unique, with different abilities, special talents and individual needs. Our purpose at the Marion Forsman-Boushie Early Learning Center is to offer an environment where the “whole child” can grow emotionally, socially, physically, intellectually and culturally. Our vision is to promote a stimulating, safe, and healthy environment encouraging learning through creative play. Our caring staff values and recognizes the vital partnership shared with our families. Parent and community participation reflects the cultural strengths, diversity, and support for a successful program. We offer Early Head Start, Head Start, ECEAP (Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program) Classes and Child Care programs. If you live within the service area, your child will be considered for enrollment. Applications are currently being accepted for ECEAP, Head Start and Early Head Start Programs. Priority is given to Tribal Households and Low Income Families. To apply contact our staff at (360) 394-8578.

We Raise Our Hands to Our Partners! 

The Marion Forsman Boushie Early Learning Center is associated with the Office of Head Start.  We were nominated in January 2009 for the Centers of Excellence award by the Office of Head Start.                 Reading Is Fundamental is a grant the MFBELC holds which provides at least three reading programs each year to encourage parents, families and community members to read to children for at least 20 minutes per day        SPARK (Sports, Play, and Active Recreation for Kids) is a non-competitive, physical activities program that encourages kids to move their body and develop healthy lifestyle habits.  


  The Second Step curriculum helps children learn how to keep their bodies safe and healthy. Topics cover a wide range including fire and gun safety, stranger awareness, street safety, safe touches, 911, poison awareness and water safety.     

Our center is partnered with Touchpoints by a grant to educate teachers and parents regarding the Touchpoint method created by Dr. T. Berry Brazleton. We have two people on staff who have been trained in this method, and have been partners for over seven years,
