Why Pre-K

Over 300 community representatives in all 21 counties attended our regional forums to tell us why New Jersey needs to expand preschool to more 3- to 4-year-olds. Watch what they have to say.


Woodbine Elementary School

Bringing New Jersey’s high-quality preschool program to Woodbine Elementary School in Cape May County not only helped the children, but the community came together as well. See the impact in this new video featuring school leaders, teachers and parents from the community.


Pre-K Our Way: Prepared for School, Ready for Success

See former New Jersey Governors Tom Kean and Jim Florio, former first lady of New Jersey Lucinda Florio, Cecilia Zalkind and Brian Maher explain why we need preschool for our children. They tell us what research proves: kids who receive high-quality preschool have the tools they need to succeed in school and in life.


Pre-K Our Way: Get Involved

See how others around the state of New Jersey are getting involved in bringing pre-k THEIR way.


Pre-K Our Way Joins Clifton School District to Advocate for Preschool Expansion

Gina Suarez moved a few blocks from Passaic to Clifton and found out it moved her son behind. A simple change in zip code removed his access to New Jersey’s high-quality preschool program that prepares children for success in school and life.


Zip Code Should Not Determine Access

What happens when a New Jersey parent moves a few blocks away—preschool disappears. Clifton parent Gina Suarez understands first-hand that the zip code where a child lives shouldn’t determine whether he or she has access to New Jersey’s high-quality preschool program.
