EVERY CHILD DESERVES A FAIR START
We’re Cincinnati Preschool Promise, a non-profit working to ensure equitable access to high- quality preschools, and better preparedness for future schooling for all children.
PRESCHOOL EXPANSION IS POSSIBLE
Cincinnati Preschool Promise is possible thanks to a significant investment from taxpayers. In 2016, and again in 2020, tax payers supported and approved –with overwhelming support– a 5-year Cincinnati Public Schools levy. The levy allocated $33 million per year to strengthen K-12 education and $15 million per year to expand access to quality preschool. Together with the United Way of Cincinnati, we created a plan to bring preschool expansion to our city, utilizing the funds to expand the number of high-quality preschools and to provide tuition assistance to families that need it most.
Our mission works to ensure equitable access to high-quality preschools so that every Cincinnati child is prepared for kindergarten.
Preschool is an integral part of every child’s education—and is equally important to the success of working families. With continuous access to top-rated education, beginning with high-quality preschools, the possibilities are endless.
Kindergarten readiness and third-grade reading are short term benefits of increased educational engagement, but in middle school, high school, and beyond, we can expect long-term benefits for our children as they excel in the workforce and thrive in their communities.
