The City of Philadelphia is expanding free, quality pre-K for 6,500 three- and four-year-olds over the next five years. In fact, the first 2,000 pre-K seats are available now. Families should act fast because classes begin on January 4th at nearly 100 locations.

Parents/caregivers can call 844-PHL-PREK (844-745-7735) to speak with a trained professional who will help them apply and locate quality pre-K programs nearby. Check out the complete list of participating programs. Space is limited so don’t delay!

Why invest in pre-K? Quality early childhood education sets children up for success? It reduces the need for special education, raises graduation rates, and narrows the achievement gap. These benefits ripple throughout our schools, neighborhoods, and local economy.

Don’t miss out! Reserve your spot today.  And be sure to use the sharing buttons below to share this post with Philadelphia families you know who can benefit from access to quality pre-K.
