Pre-K Counts is designed to prepare children for reading and math, improving attention , following directions and getting along with others in preparation for Kindergarten enrollment in their home school districts.

All Pre-K Counts classrooms:

  • Have teachers who possess the education and expertise to instruct young children;

  • Use a curriculum designed to help children grow academically and socially;

  • Regularly review children’s progress and choose teaching and learning activities that are tailored to each child’s individual needs;

  • Offer small class sizes so children receive plenty of 1:1 time with teachers.

Children between the ages of 3 and 4 who live in families earning up to 300 percent of the federal poverty level are eligible to enroll in this free program. Breakfast and lunch are served to all children enrolled in the program.

Ambridge Area School District offers two PreK classrooms at Highland Elementary School and one at both State Street and Economy elementary schools for a total of four Pre-K classrooms.
