In three years, NJ’s state-funded, full-day pre-k has grown from twenty years of only 35 districts to nearly 150 today! Now, there’s $10 million in funding for NEW expansion! Every county – and virtually every Legislative District – has school districts eligible for pre-k expansion. Our goal for the next state budget: funding to reach more than 200 districts in the 2021-2022 school year!
Let your school district superintendent and principal(s) know that you want state-funded, full-day pre-k! There’s $10 million in new pre-k expansion funding in the state budget. There are approximately 125 eligible school districts. A successful application – even for only 1-2 classes this round of funding – enables future expansion in the district WITHOUT further applications!
You can get involved in many ways: tell your friends about Pre-K Our Way, sign-up for updates, follow us on Facebook and Twitter, download resources – and more!
There are nearly 150 school districts with state-funded, full-day pre-k.
