PA Pre-K Counts
PA Pre-K Counts is a Free State funded program for preschool children ages 3-5. PA Pre-K Counts provides high quality pre-kindergarten to children at risk of school failure either due to income, cultural, language or special needs issues. Teachers hold early childhood degrees/certifications. With small class sizes (20 students per one teacher and one assistant teacher), there is one-on-one time with the teachers and regular consultation with parents. Currently, there are four classrooms in three different locations in Lawrence County that house the PA Pre-K Counts Program.
