Delco Times: Parent forum Feb. 26 looks at pre-kindergarten education
“The push for high quality pre-kindergarten education in the state will be the focus of a parent forum at Upper Darby High School on Feb. 26 called DelCo For Pre-K, an initiative to make sure three- and four-year-olds are ready for kindergarten.
Hosted by the Pre-K For PA coalition, DelCo For Pre-K is part of a state-wide regional series that invites parents in the county to learn about pre-k and how to make it a priority for elected leaders.
The forum will be hosted at the school’s board room at 8201 Lansdowne Ave. from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
“Children with access to high-quality, pre-k are more likely to advance grades and have improved social skills,” says a promotional flyer. “When all children arrive ready to learn, all of our schools are better.””
