Act 166 Universal Preschool
Act 166, signed into law in 2014, provides for universal access to publicly funded prekindergarten (Pre-K) education. Publicly funded Pre-K offers 10 hours per week of free programing for all 3- to 5-year-olds during the academic year (i.e., 35 weeks). Pre-K education is offered in a variety of settings including center-based programs, home-based programs, Head Start classrooms, private preschool programs, and in public schools. Programs must be pre-qualified with the Agency of Education in order to access these fund.
