Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts is a state-funded pre-kindergarten learning program that we offer at our Cranberry, Franklin School-Age and Hasson Heights centers. This full-day, school-year program for 3-, 4- and 5-year-old boys and girls is intended to provide an early educational boost that will help them to make a successful transition to kindergarten and beyond and to do better in school.
Pre-K Counts focuses on reading and math skills, social and school readiness skills, following directions and getting along with fellow students and teachers. Additionally, there is an emphasis on developing an interest in learning and involving the family in the child’s education.
Grant funding covers all costs of Pre-K Counts. The program is primarily for low-income households, though families with higher income also may enroll their children.
