Legislative Update

The recent State Budget signed on July 4, 2017 included $25 million for pre-k expansion funding. It was the first significant expansion in nearly a decade. Funding for pre-k expansion in the recently signed State Budget demonstrates the raised priority of pre-k across our state; it is the initial step in bringing NJ’s full-day, state-funded pre-k to 50,000 3- and 4-year-olds across hundreds of NJ’s communities. Pre-K Our Way’s goal remains unchanged: 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, and it is time to fund pre-k as a critical educational improvement.

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

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

Today, under existing law, there are 35 communities with pre-k for 3- and 4-year-olds.

Under that same law, the number should now be nearly 140 districts.

The law allows that the existing program should be extended for all at-risk 3- and 4-year-olds in all New Jersey communities.
