What’s Next for Private Childcare Centers in New Jersey’s Push for Public Pre-K?

Governor Murphy recently released his first budget and proposed an $83 million increase in preschool funding – $25 million to continue the expansion funded from last year and another $58 million to expand preschool to 3 and 4-year-old children in more communities. It is the first step in a four-year phase-in to fully fund preschool expansion.

We’ve collected a diverse panel to have conversation with to help us to have better answers (and better questions) as to what this means for private providers going forward. Panelists include: Ellen Frede, PhD Senior Co-Director, National Institute for Early Education Research; Ruth Piatt – Director, Little Lamb Preschool-Keener Kids, Inc.; Maryanne Preztunik – Pre-K Our Way; Cynthia C. Rice, Esq, Senior Policy Analyst, Advocates for Children of New Jersey.

Come prepared with questions for our panel or submit them ahead of time to
