Children who come to kindergarten without all the skills they need often stay behind and struggle in school.  Quality pre-kindergarten prepares children for reading and math, but also for paying attention, following directions, and getting along with others. 


Pre-kindergarten gives children a chance to learn, become excited about school, and be better students.



Our Central Elementary  PA Pre-k Counts class is designed for students who:


  * Turn 4 years old by August 31st.


  * Are at risk for school failure and living in families earning up to 300% of the federal income poverty level. 


  * May also be English language learners or have special needs.
