“It would relieve an enormous financial stress”
Hope from Brooklyn says:
“My four-year-old daughter, Georgia [pictured], has a little brother who is almost two. My husband and I are lucky: our children are happy, healthy, and developing normally. They attend a little school in our neighborhood, and they are well taken care of and learning a lot. The only downside is that it costs us $38,000 a year.
“Obviously, if my daughter got a seat in quality, full day pre-k, it would relieve an enormous financial stress on my family – but that is far from the only reason I think pre-k is so important. I know a lot of four year olds, through my daughter. They are curious, and crave knowledge. There is no question in my mind that they should all be in school.”
