The Greater Valley YMCA is launching new Pre-K Counts Program sites at the Allentown branch and Bethlehem branch, in addition to the existing program at the Forks Education Center.

 

Pre-K Counts is designed for children starting at age three and until they enter kindergarten. Families are encouraged to apply if they meet the income criteria; currently 300% of the federal poverty level or $73,800 for a family of four. The program is free to families who qualify. Additional fees apply to extended child care.

 

Studies have shown that children who are enrolled in a quality pre-kindergarten program have a better chance of being ready for elementary school. This strong early start in pre‑kindergarten means they have a better chance of doing well in school, going on to college or career training, and getting a good job.

 

The Pre-K Counts Program at the Allentown branch is currently accepting applications for pre-kindergarten classes for the 2017-18 school year. Classes are scheduled to begin November 2017 at the Pre-K Counts Program located at 425 15th Street, Allentown, PA 18102.

 

The Pre-K Counts Program at the Bethlehem branch is currently accepting applications for pre-kindergarten classes for the 2017-18 school year. Classes are scheduled to begin October 2017 at the Pre-K Counts Program located at 430 E. Broad Street, Bethlehem, PA 18018.

 

The Pre-K Counts Program at the Forks Education Center is currently accepting applications for a waitlist for the pre-kindergarten classes which began on August 28, 2017 at the Pre-K Counts Program located at 1350 Sullivan Trail, Easton, PA 18040.

 

Applications can be obtained at the branches or can be downloaded from the Greater Valley YMCA website at www.gv-ymca.org.
