WEST CHESTER (August 8) – Pre-Kindergarten programs in five Chester County school districts will receive more than $480,000 in state funding, state Senator Andy Dinniman announced today.

“Every child deserves access to quality pre-kindergarten and early education programs to give them a strong start in school and in life and that is precisely what Pennsylvania’s Pre-K Counts program aims to do,” Dinniman, who serves as minority chair of the Senate Education Committee, said. “

The grant funding, which comes from the Pre-K Counts Program administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Office of Child Development and Early Learning, is as follows:

• $144,500 for Treehouse Child Care Services (the Children’s Treehouse) serving the West Chester Area, Coatesville Area, and Downingtown Area school districts.

• $340,000 for Bright Beginnings Education Center serving the Oxford Area and Avon Grove School Districts.

Pre-K Counts provides free quality half-day and full-day pre-kindergarten to eligible 3- and 4 year olds in Pennsylvania. Each program offering PA Pre-K Counts classrooms will have their own guidelines, but PA Pre-K Counts is designed for children who are:

• Between age 3 and the entry age for kindergarten.
• Living in families earning up to 300 percent of the federal poverty level.
• At risk of school failure or who may be English language learners or have special needs or developmental delays that put them at risk of school failure.
