Programs with the highest ratios win! Note: All children served count for the total number of children served: part-time, full-time, and after school care.

Our Vision

Pre-K for PA’s vision is that all 3- and 4-year-old children in Pennsylvania have the opportunity to enter kindergarten ready to succeed. Help us spread the word to our elected officials and candidates running for office this year by signing up as many Pennsylvanians as possible! Your support helps to ensure leaders in Harrisburg will make early learning a priority issue.  Pre-K for PA does not support or oppose candidates.
