Pre-K Counts

As an initiative of the Pennsylvania Department of Education, this program gives children a chance to learn, get excited about school, and become better students. The program operates from September to June and helps smooth the transition to Kindergarten. We utilize curriculums that help your child grow academically and socially. There are a limited number of slots available for this program. A portion of the day is funded through PA Pre-K Counts, which is free to families. In addition, wrap-around child care is available for a fee. Read More...

But once your parental leave is up, it can be difficult to know who you can trust with your baby’s well-being while you’re working or taking care of other responsibilities. Read More...
