Information for Families About Pre-K Enrollment
We know that low-income children that attend pre-k are more likely to achieve academically than their peers that don’t attend. It is essential that families enroll their children before July 31st in pre-k. If you serve families with children who will be 4 by September, you can help them to enroll by distributing this pre-k registration guide. For more information about how you can get the word about enrollment, click here.
