Pre-K Our Way Kicks Off
With tens of thousands of New Jersey children still lacking access to high-quality preschool, a new campaign has launched to change that. Pre-K Our Way is a nonpartisan, community effort aimed at bringing quality preschool to children in towns throughout New Jersey. Advocates for Children of New Jersey is proud to be part of this effort. ACNJ has long championed preschool expansion as mandated in New Jersey’s 2008 school funding law.
“This campaign is about making preschool a priority for our state leaders,” said Cecilia Zalkind, executive director, Advocates for Children of New Jersey, a statewide, non-profit child research and action organization. “We know that high-quality preschool is a critical piece of ensuring that all children arrive at kindergarten ready for school success. We believe this 3-year campaign will help us finally keep the promise of preschool to children across New Jersey.”
“We are excited to be part of this campaign and to work with such respected state leaders, including former Governors Kean and Florio,” Zalkind said. “We are also happy to partner with business leader Brian Maher, who is spearheading this campaign and who recognizes how important early learning is to maintaining a skilled and stable workforce.”
