Free Pre-Kindergarten Program Driving Better Educational Beginnings

Early education better prepares children to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Established by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), the purpose of Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts is to help ensure quality pre-kindergarten opportunities are available to children (ages three to five) across the commonwealth. This program is free to eligible families. 

The Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts program:

  • Is based on the quality components adopted for pre-kindergarten by the State Board of Education
  • Provides families with a choice of quality pre-kindergarten options in a school, child care center, Head Start, or nursery school
  • Increases access to quality pre-kindergarten with a priority in at-risk communities
  • Builds on the work of the Pre-K Counts Public-Private Partnership for Educational Success, a three-year project funded by leading Pennsylvania foundations and supported by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
