A Closer Look at the Pre-K Counts Program

Why does my child need a pre-k program?

Children who come to kindergarten without all the skills they need often stay behind and struggle in school.

Quality pre-kindergarten prepares children for reading and math, but also for paying attention, following directions and getting along with others.

Pre-kindergarten gives children a chance to learn, become excited about school, and be better students!

Your child has a better chance of being ready for kindergarten and grade school. A strong early start in pre-kindergarten means they have a better chance of doing well in school, going on to college or career training, and getting a good job.
