Expanding access to high-quality, early childhood education is a proven investment and priority for the Wolf administration. Governor Tom Wolf recently announced more Pennsylvania families will have access to high-quality early learning programs, with approximately 2,125 new slots in Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts and 490 new slots in the Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program (HSSAP) being made available. In 2018-19, more than 29,250 children will receive services through PA Pre-K Counts or HSSAP.
A listing of the PA Pre-K Counts and HSSAP competitive grant awardees for 2018-19 is available on the PA Department of Education website.
