Expand NJ’s pre-k now! New Jersey has one of the best public preschool programs in the country. In July 2017, $25 million was included in the State Budget – the first significant expansion to funding in nearly a decade. It was the initial step in bringing NJ’s pre-k to hundreds of communities and the 50,000 3- and 4-year-olds still waiting. Pre-K Our Way’s 2018 focus: secure significant funding for pre-k expansion in the new governor’s first budget.
Check out stories, pictures, and examples of the impact of recent pre-k expansion in some of the 26 communities. New info is added regularly!
