The commitment to NJ’s pre-k is evident: the Governor and Legislature prioritize state-funded, full-day pre-k for our state and for its working families. This commitment continued throughout the financial challenges of COVID-19. That support was evident earlier in the same year when the NJ Legislature applauded – twice – when the topic of pre-k expansion was included in Governor Murphy’s Annual Budget Address back in February 2020. Governor Murphy’s proposed FY2022 budget includes $50 million for pre-k expansion funding.
The documents below have been updated to reflect the 2020-2021 school year’s 150+ funded pre-k expansion districts and Governor Murphy’s proposed FY2022 budget funding of $50 million for pre-k expansion.
