April 3, 2018
HARRISBURG, Pa. – Pre-school students from across Pennsylvania, including some from Berks County, traveled to Harrisburg on Tuesday for an Easter event with the state’s first couple.
Gov. Tom Wolf and his wife, Frances, welcomed the children to the governor’s residence for an event that included the opportunity for them to visit with the Easter Bunny and pet some of his furry friends.
“These are our future, all these kids, and they’re going to determine how Pennsylvania is 20, 30, 40, 50 years from now,” Wolf said. “We got to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to get them the education they need.”
The event was co-sponsored by Pre-K for PA, a nonpartisan group that advocates for the expansion of publicly funded pre-kindergarten.
“Pre-K doesn’t just benefit the children fortunate enough to access a high-quality program, it benefits the entire commonwealth,” Wolf said. “We must get serious about investing in early childhood education to make sure all of Pennsylvania’s children enter kindergarten ready to learn.”
