We know from years of research that high-quality pre-k works. It helps prepare kids for kindergarten, reduces the need for costly special education and remedial learning programs, and puts kids on a solid track to years of academic success.
You know what else works? Your voice in growing Pennsylvania’s pre-k investments.
Over the past several weeks, supporters of the nonpartisan Pre-K for PA campaign (to which we proudly belong) have been calling and emailing the governor and legislative leaders to help ensure the overdue state budget, once it’s finalized, will have significant new investments in high-quality pre-k.
Unfortunately, a final budget deal is not likely to come together until December, and pre-k providers have gone without state support since summer. The result is many providers are struggling to keep their doors open and, sadly, some have been forced to close because of the budget impasse.
The coming days will be crucial to the Pre-K for PA campaign’s efforts. Help us amplify the call for pre-k by joining the campaign. Or if you’ve already joined, recruit a few friends and family over the holiday weekend.
We’re thankful for your support!
