PennLive: Gov. Shapiro, first lady host annual Easter Egg Hunt

Governor Josh Shapiro and First Lady Lori Shapiro hosted several pre-k students, teachers, and advocates at for an annual Easter egg hunt Tuesday.

The Easter Egg Hunt was co-sponsored by Pre-K for PA.

The event served two purposes: continuing the tradition of an Easter Egg hunt at the governor’s residence, and promoting Shapiro’s plan to invest more money in early childhood education in Pennsylvania.

“Safe and strong communities are built on the foundation of an adequate and equitable education, from pre-K through college – and we must invest in early education so that every child in Pennsylvania can get the best possible start in life,” Shapiro said.

Shapiro’s budget proposes investing more than $30 million in Head Start and Pre-K Counts to help employ more preschool teachers and serve more students.
