NJ Governor Announces Universal Pre-K Coming to NJ for All Families


NJ Governor Phil Murphy announced Thursday a commitment to see early childhood education expand in NJ. The state will commit to providing universal pre-K to all families across the state over the next few years. A roadmap for pre-K expansion will be developed by the Department of Education.

This announcement comes after 5 years of expansion of NJ’s current state-funded full day pre-K for qualifying working parents throughout the state. To date, Murphy has released state funding to 140 school districts for either a new high-quality preschool program or to expand their existing program, opening preschool to over 9,000 children state wide.
