The Pennsylvania PreK Counts prek-kindergarten program, established by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, makes quality pre-kindergarten opportunities available (at no cost) to qualified children and families across the commonwealth. The program is available to three and four year old children who are at risk of school failure, either because of income (300% of poverty level, or a family of 4 making $72,900), language (English is not your first language), or special needs issues. Our program is available 180 days per year from 7:30 A.M. until 1:00 P.M. and follows the Wyalusing or Towanda School District schedule.
PreK Counts classrooms have teachers and assistant teachers with the education and expertise to teach young children. Teachers will regularly review your child’s progress and choose learning activities that are best for your child. PreK Counts also helps children to transition smoothly into kindergarten.
We follow both the Creative Curriculum and SAR ImagineIt! Curriculum, which helps your children grow academically and socially. Our rooms have centers set-up to have the children learn at their own pace. The centers include dramatic play/housekeeping, blocks, computers, library, art, sand and water, and a writing center. We follow the PA Early Learning Standards in developing lessons for our PreK Counts classrooms.
