Pre-K Houston Campaign Launches
Pre-K plays a critical role in ensuring students start strong in kindergarten, which is an early indicator of future academic success. Quality early learning experiences positively impacts students’ social, emotional, and academic development and lowers their risk of repeating a grade.
Despite these benefits, approximately 44,000 students in Houston are eligible for free pre-K but are not currently enrolled in any early childhood learning setting. We have worked alongside partner districts on a campaign to support the growth of enrollment and outreach to eligible parents.
Pre-K enrollment week runs April 29th – May 3rd, but families can continue to enroll their children in pre-K until the start of the 2019-20 school year. Watch our video with the Astros below, and visit PrekHouston.org to learn more!
