Pre-K Counts

The Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts pre-kindergarten program, established by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, makes quality pre-kindergarten opportunities available to children and families not only in Erie County, but across the commonwealth.

The Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts program is based on the quality components adopted for pre-kindergarten by the State Board of Education and provides families with a choice of quality pre-kindergarten options.

Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts classrooms:

  • have teachers with the education and expertise to teach young children;
  • use a curriculum that will help your child grow academically and socially;
  • regularly review your child’s progress and choose teaching and learning activities that are best for your child;
  • help you and your child adjust to pre-kindergarten and smoothly move on to kindergarten; and
  • offer a small class size so that your child can have plenty of one-on-one time with the teachers.
