A child’s early years are a key time of mental and emotional development, as they form skills that will help them to succeed in school—and beyond. A quality preschool program helps a child build a solid foundation for learning. This vital resource should be available to all children. That is why the Shaler Area School District is so pleased that preschool programs are offered at primary schools in our district free of charge to qualifying families. A family of 4 is eligible if they earn up to $90,000 annually.
Through these programs, caring, certified early childhood education teachers provide instruction to help prepare children for kindergarten. The programs, operated by the Private Industry Council, are now enrolling for the 2023/2024 school year. There are Pre-K Counts classrooms in all four primary schools in the district: Burchfield, Marzolf, Reserve, and Scott. The school day is 8:15 am - 2:15 pm, with free breakfast and lunch provided to all Pre-K students.
