The Inland Northwest Early Learning Alliance (INWELA) is a collaboration of regional community leaders working to help young children and families succeed. We envision a world where all children have access to quality early learning.

 Collaboration is one of our highest values. Outside of meeting monthly with regional early learning professionals, Inland Northwest Early Learning alliance members engage with Washington Communities for Children Learning Network Teams to foster learning and connections across the state.



ININWELA serves Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille, Lincoln, Spokane, Adams, and Whitman Counties. We are one of ten regional early learning alliances supported by Washington Communities for Children. Please contact us to learn more or to join a meeting.
