Early Years La Salle Partners with PreK Counts

Keystone Star 4 Program Expands to Help the Community
August 22, 2018

Early Years La Salle Preschool

A quality preschool is designed to provide children the opportunity to ease into and become excited about the school environment while helping to prepare them to be successful learners. Children ages 3- 5 need to gradually learn simple tasks like paying attention, following directions, getting along with others, and sharing, before entering kindergarten. Often good preschool programs are expensive, thus parents wait for kindergarten to enroll their child in school. Working parents require longer days than a typical preschool schedule usually offers, so they turn to daycares. CORA understands the challenges facing working parents.

CORA’s Early Years at La Salle University has been a Keystone Star Four facility for the past 5 years and parents greatly value the wonderful home away for home it is for their eager-to-learn toddlers. Early Years La Salle recently partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Education to participate in the Pre-K Counts Program. Starting this September,  parents may be eligible to receive financial support to prepare their children for kindergarten! Under the leadership of CORA’s new site director, Melody Dougherty,  parents will be guided through the application process to see if they qualify for a Pre-K Counts spot. As always, CORA’s Early Years La Salle Pre-K Counts classrooms will offer small classes with professional teachers that are passionate about early childhood education. CORA’s Early Years staff are trained in a curriculum to prepare preschool age children to progress academically, socially and emotionally, before entering elementary school.
