Early childhood education has gained increased attention in recent years thanks to efforts like Pre-K for PA and the support of Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf. Universal pre-K has even made it onto the national agenda, and Philadelphia has just announced plans to add 2,000 new high-quality pre-K seats at 78 sites through its new PHLpreK initiative. Join the Philadelphia Education Fund to hear about Philadelphia’s push for pre-K from Philadelphia’s Chief Education Officer and a panel of expert pre-K providers, authorizers, and advocates.
