Pre-K Counts Registration

Child Development Centers and Franklin YMCA are seeking 3- and 4-year-old children from Franklin Area School District to enroll for the upcoming school term in Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts. To qualify for this year’s Pre-K Counts classes, a child must reach his or her third or fourth birthday by August 1. 

Pre-K Counts is a state-funded preschool program (full-day at Child Development Centers, half-day at Franklin YMCA) for boys and girls from income-eligible households. The program is intended to give children an early educational boost that will help them to make a successful transition to kindergarten and beyond. 

Pre-K Counts instruction focuses on reading and math skills, social and school-readiness skills, following directions, and getting along with fellow students and teachers. There also is emphasis on developing an interest in learning and involving the family in the child’s education. 

To register your child or learn more about Pre-K Counts, contact Martha Hoover at Child Development Centers, 437-7288.
