On July 2, 2015 Freshwater Cleveland featured ACS client PRE4CLE, which in just 16 months, is nearly halfway toward their goal of enrolling 2,000 children into high-quality preschool. ACS has developed the communication and advocacy plan that drives PRE4CLE local, state, and national activity.
PRE4CLE, Cleveland’s plan to rapidly expand access to high-quality preschool opportunities for the city’s three and four-year-olds, is raising the bar for high-quality preschool. Seven hundred existing preschool slots were improved to PRE4CLE’s high-quality standards. Another 450 high-quality slots were created to meet the demand.
At the heart of PRE4CLE’s success is the unique collaboration of Cleveland’s public, private, business, philanthropic, and faith-based community. The Cleveland community is putting its money where its mouth is. To date, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, Cuyahoga County, and philanthropic partners have contributed more $9 million in public funding to support high-quality preschool opportunities for the city’s three and four-year-olds.
