Rationale for 4K

Research shows that children who attend pre-k are:

More successful during their school years:

More successful outside of and beyond school:

Early childhood education saves our communities money. The general effect is a more efficient education system with less pressure on school resources and expenditures. It is estimated that preschool education can save U.S. taxpayers around $7.10 for every dollar invested (High/Scope, Reynolds, Abecedarian)

The community approach allows families options in providing quality care and education to all 4-year-olds, regardless of ability or family income. The community approach preserves the health of the child care system in the community while generating additional state funds for the community to education 4-year-olds.

Increased number of family activities and opportunities through the community because of strengthened partnerships amongst community organizations.

Transportation

4K students will be included as part of the K-12 transportation program. A special 4K route will be scheduled in between the morning and afternoon sessions (11 a.m. - 12 p.m.). The centers will have someone at the door to greet and send off students each day.
