With a quality preschool education, children are ready for kindergarten, read successfully by the end of third grade, do better in school, and graduate from high school prepared for college and careers.
About Cincinnati Preschool Promise
There are 9,200 three and four-year-old children in Cincinnati, nearly half live at or below the federal poverty level. As our children enter kindergarten, more than 40% of Cincinnati’s children are not prepared. The gap is even greater for low-income children. While there is some public funding preschool tuition assistance available, it is not sufficient to meet the demand. New preschool funding offered by the Cincinnati Preschool Promise will allow more children to attend quality preschool by making it more affordable for the families who need it most.
