Pre-K Counts

LVCC is proud to provide Pennsylvania’s state-funded preschool program, Pre-K Counts. The program is free for those who qualify and operates on an academic calendar year (September - June). If your child is currently three or four years old and your household income falls at or below 300% of the federal poverty level (approx. $73,800 annually for a family of four), you may apply for Pre-K Counts. We select children based on age, income, developmental delays, and other risk factors.

 

We provide:

  • Free pre-kindergarten classes with a PA certified, degreed teacher and a qualified assistant teacher
  • Monday – Friday, 5-hour class day from 8:30AM-1:30PM
  • A healthy morning snack and lunch
  • Extended child care services may be available (for a fee) from 6:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

Pre-K Counts classrooms are located at the following LVCC centers:
