Keeping the Preschool Promise

Serving Families & Providers Within the Cincinnati Public School Boundaries

At Cincinnati Preschool Promise, we want every child in Cincinnati to be prepared for kindergarten—and the years beyond. We are a non-profit organization working to ensure equitable access to high-quality preschool.

What We Do

Preschool is an integral part of every child’s education—and is equally important to the success of working families. We work with Providers to make access to high-quality preschools a reality while ensuring participating schools provide the level of care your children deserve.

Who We Serve


For your child to get the most out of their preschool experience, we look at education holistically. We work with families to provide tuition assistance, support equitable wages while empowering teachers to be prepared educators, and ensure Cincinnati preschool Providers have the resources they need to make a lasting impact.

Our Impact

Currently, in our 4th year, more than 4000 children have received tuition assistance at more than 100 eligible Cincinnati Preschool Promise -approved community-based, private, and public preschools.

78.4% of Cincinnati Preschool Promise Tuition Assistance participants scored either within the “approaching” and “demonstrating” performance level, as opposed to 69.8% of the comparison group on the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment – an 8.6 point difference.
