The Growing Place
PA Pre-K Counts

Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts was established by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to bring quality pre-kindergarten to Pennsylvania preschoolers. PA Pre-K Counts is for children who may be at risk of school failure due to family income, language, cultural issues, special needs, or other circumstances.
The collaboration of The Growing Place Child Care Centers and Pleasant Valley School District was awarded PA Pre-K Counts funds to deliver a half-day preschool program, five days a week, to 68  area three- and four-year-olds.  This program is free to families who qualify.  PA Pre-K Counts is held September through June.  This program is held in Brodheadsville at the Chestnuthill Elementary School.
