Legislative Update

For the first time in nearly a decade, New Jersey is funding pre-k expansion. It was the first significant expansion in nearly a decade – but for only a few thousand children. 50,000 3- and 4-year-olds are still waiting. That’s not right!

There are 50,000 3- and 4-year-olds across hundreds of communities still waiting for the high-quality pre-k promised by law in 2008. Pre-K Our Way’s goal: funding for pre-k expansion in the first budget of a new governor in 2018.

Is Pre-K Coming Your Way?

Pre-k expansion is a growing priority in New Jersey. It’s time to fund pre-k as a critical educational improvement – and time to reach the hundreds of communities and 50,000 3- and 4-year-olds still waiting for NJ’s pre-k!

There is no more important educational investment for New Jersey than to expand our successful, high-quality pre-k to more students. Let the candidates for governor know that you want pre-k!

Where your children live shouldn’t determine whether or not they have access to Pre-K.

Today, there are fewer than 65 communities with state-funded, full-day pre-k for some or all 3- and 4-year-olds. As promised by 2008 law, there should be hundreds more communities – and 50,000 children – with access to NJ’s full-day, state funded pre-k for every 3- and 4-year-old in the community.
