Governor Wolf to Advocate for Increased Pre-K Funding with Pre-K for PA

Governor's Reception Room, Main Capitol Building, Harrisburg, PA

Governor Wolf will hold a press conference with Pre-K for PA to discuss the importance of funding early childhood education. He will also accept an award for his commitment to early childhood education in the commonwealth.

Early childhood education is a top priority for Governor Wolf and a major component of his “Schools that Teach” initiative. Governor Wolf’s 2017-2018 budget includes a $75 million increase for high-quality early childhood education. Building upon $60 million in additional investment over the past two years, this nearly 40 percent increase in funding will allow more than 8,400 additional children to enroll in Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts and the Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program.
