School District of Philadelphia Preschool (Pre-K) Services

 

 

The School District of Philadelphia directly provides free, full-day preschool services to more than 9,500 children (ages 3-5) in partnership with Pre-K Counts, Head Start Partners and PHL PreK. It is important that you start the process of enrolling your child as soon as you know you will want preschool services. Entering children must be three years old by September 1, and five year olds after September 1. Children who are five before September 1 must apply to Kindergarten.

Why Pre-K?

  • Pre-K prepares your child for Kindergarten by giving them an advantage in literacy, language, math and social/emotional skills.
  • Pre-K reduces special education placements by nearly half through 2nd grade.
  • Pre-K reduces grade repetition by as much as a third through 8th grade.
