Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts (Pre-K Counts) provides quality half-day and full-day pre-kindergarten to eligible 3 and 4-year-olds in Pennsylvania and gives children a chance to learn, become excited about school and be better students.
Pre-K Counts is designed for children who:
Are between age 3 and until the entry age for kindergarten;
Are at risk of school failure and living in families earning up to 300 percent of the federal income poverty level (such as a family of four earning $90,000) who may also be English language learners or have special needs.
By enrolling your eligible child in quality pre-kindergarten, your child has a better chance of being ready for kindergarten and grade school. This strong early start in pre-kindergarten means they have a better chance of doing well in school, going on to college or career training, and getting a good job. All of this can start by enrolling your child in a Pre-K Counts classroom!
BHASD PA Pre-K Counts classrooms will:
Employ teachers with the education and expertise to teach young children
Allow children to participate in indoor and outdoor play daily
Use a research-based curriculum that will help your child grow, academically and socially
Regularly review your child’s progress and choose teaching and learning activities that are best for your child
Help you and your child adjust to pre-kindergarten and smoothly move on to kindergarten
Provide nutritious lunch and snacks daily
Offer a small class size (20 students per one teacher and one aide) so that your child can have plenty of one-on-one time with the teachers.
By enrolling your eligible child in Pre-K Counts, you can give your child a great start to a bright future.
