HARRISBURG – Three state grants that were awarded today will help expand early childhood education opportunities for students in Beaver, Greene and Washington counties, according to Senator Camera Bartolotta (R-46).
Ambridge Area School District in Beaver County will receive a grant through the Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts program. The Blueprints program, which serves residents of Washington and Greene counties, was awarded grants through both the Pre-K Counts program and the Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program.
The grants were announced as part of a statewide initiative that will add 2,125 new slots in Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts and 490 new slots in Head Start. The programs will be offered at no cost to families.
The competitive grant programs are administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Office of Child Development and Early Learning.
