Pre-K Counts

  • Providence Connections (PC) is pleased to partner with Pittsburgh Public School (PPS) to offer PreK Counts, a full-day, state-funded pre-kindergarten program that provides services to children between the ages of three and five.

    PA Pre-K Counts classrooms will: have teachers with the education and expertise to teach young children; use a curriculum that will help your child grow academically and socially; regularly review your child’s progress and choose teaching and learning activities that are best for your child; help you and your child adjust to Pre-K and smoothly move on to kindergarten; offer a small class size so your child can have plenty of one-on-one time with the teachers.

    To participate in the program at PC, all District guidelines listed below must be followed:

    • Families must submit a complete PreK Counts application, including all required documentation. Children cannot enter into the program at PC unless a complete application is submitted.
    • Families must meet income guidelines and other criteria set by the PPS PreK Counts Program.
    • The program runs from 08:00 am to 3:00 pm.
    • All children must be picked up by 3:00 pm unless you have made arrangements for childcare.
    • All children must arrive at the center by 9:00 am unless there is a documented reason, such as a doctor’s note, and no later than 12 noon.
    • Children must be at least three years old, at the beginning of the school year, to be eligible for the current program year.
