We love children and believe that good education equips young people to become adults who make our communities a better place to live. Our goal is to help educators and parents with the teaching tools that lead to the best learning possible.
We believe strongly in life-long education and have materials for adults and seniors as well. We draw heavily on our years of teaching and developing curriculum to find products and work with our customers.
We choose our products personally by attending the industry’s national trade shows and we give special attention to product quality, health, and environmental impact.
We partner with school districts, independent schools, families and organizations to enrich learners’ educational environments from toddler through high school.
"We don’t just sell products— we are an educational resource for our region”
-Jen and Kristen, Co-Owners
We care about the disadvantaged learner and leverage our skills and corporate resources to expand every child’s personal development. Our team includes seven educators and pre-school specialists with expertise in mathematics, reading, children’s literature, music, art, foreign languages and social studies.
We are locally owned and managed.
Support for the Community
We seek to make our community stronger through our service and our gifts. We donate annually to over 40 non-profit organizations that help kids in our three-county region and in a Kenyan village school overseas.
We support many organizations with our time and membership including North Sound Reading Council, Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce, Whatcom Literacy Council, Sustainable Connections, Whatcom Women in Business, Kiwanis, Whatcom Homeschool Association, Project Hope Christmas Angel, Whatcom Council on Early Childhood Education, Skagit Early Childhood Council, Elder Service Providers, and Love, INC.
Schools frequently ask us to help with parent nights or family math nights as well as hosting workshops for professionals. We also help a large number of pre-schools associated with the Whatcom County Opportunity Council through speakers, fundraisers, and use of our community meeting room.
Launching Success has been honored twice as a finalist for Small Business of the Year by the Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce. This award is based on participation and contribution to the community as well as strong performance and development of the business. They won Small Business of the Year in 2017.
