The Betty J. Taylor Early Learning Academy (BJTELA) oﬀers the highest quality services for children ages birth to ﬁve, and their families. Our facility, located on approximately 4 acres overlooking Tulalip Bay, strives to maintain excellent early learning standards. We have several options available, including a birth – 3 program (Early Head Start), an age 3 – 5 preschool program offering ECEAP, Montessori, and child care. The school program is free to eligible students.
TELA will add an additional three classrooms for the birth-to-three program with the expansion. Once the new wing is complete, the new classrooms will be larger in size and provide space for more kids in each class. The new wing is slated to open in the Fall of 2023.
