South Pittsburgh Reporter: Councilwoman Rudiak in NY, NY to learn more about pre-school
The Grable Foundation has partnered with The Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children (PAEYC) to design a series of learning tours to foster innovative early childhood education, strategies and policies.
Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak will represent Pittsburgh City Council on the first of these learning tours to New York City Monday and Tuesday, July 14-15, to learn about New York City’s universal Pre-K program.
Councilwoman Rudiak has advocated for a “Pittsburgh Promise for preschoolers,” in which every pre-school age child living in the City of Pittsburgh would have access to a free, high-quality preschool education. She has also been an early champion of the Pre-K for PA Campaign (http://www.prekforpa.org), a project of the The Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children (PAEYC).
