Our Preschool is among the nations best again
For the eleventh straight year our very own Alabama’s First Class Preschool is ranked among the top in the Nation. We are extremely proud of our Pre-K program and all of those are who are involved in making it great. But don’t just take our word for it. Read what Jahmal Kennedy, Digital Content Producer for WSFA NBC 12 had to say about it:
“The National Institute for Early Education Research has once again named Alabama’s First Class Pre-K program among the nation’s highest quality state-funded pre-kindergarten programs.
This is the 11th straight year Alabama’s program has received this distinction.
“I am proud of the work of our pre-k programs and I am thankful for the dedication of Secretary Ross in leading this program,” Gov.Kay Ivey said.
Alabama is one of only six states with a pre-k program that meets or exceeds all 10 of the benchmarks that NIERR measures. Some of these benchmarks include: information on enrollment, funding and teaching qualification.
The other five states include North Carolina, Mississippi, Rhode Island, West Virginia and Louisiana.
“The earlier a child learns, the more likely he or she is to do well later in life. Providing a high-quality education for all Alabamians, at every stage of life, is my goal,” Ivey said.
The program will receive an additional $13 million extension for the next year.”
