Last November, Cincinnati voters approved a $48 million levy for Cincinnati Public Schools, part of which will be used to increase access to quality preschool. When the first classes start in August, an additional 2,000 Cincinnati three- and four-year-olds will start attending subsidized preschool as part of the expansion program. The goal is 6,000 children in five years.
Cincinnati Preschool Promise recently held sessions to reach out to preschool providers who are interested in being involved with the program. The organization also will hold several informational sessions for parents starting April 10.
Here to update us are Stephanie Byrd, interim director of Cincinnati Preschool Promise, and Vanessa White, lead implementation director.
