UNIVERSAL PRE-KINDERGARTEN (PRE-K)
Universal Pre-K make access to preschool education available to all children within the preschool age bracket – typically 3- and 4-year-olds. Researchers agree that brain development in children in the years leading up to kindergarten lays the foundation for their future success. Pre-K programs promote age appropriate educational experiences for children, including the development of language, early literacy skills, and cognitive, physical and social skills.
Ultimately, the benefits of pre-K programs follow students beyond their school years and into adult life.
