The Cincinnati Preschool Promise
How is Preschool Promise faring? Passed by local voters in 2016, this initiative to make quality preschool available to every child in the Cincinnati public school district is an ambitious goal. At this Community Issues Forum, Shiloh Turner, executive director of Cincinnati Preschool Promise, provides an update on its expansion since it got the green light to proceed.
Although studies show how a quality preschool program can make a significant difference in a child’s early development, the problems of cost and access often make it unavailable to many children, especially those from families living near or at the poverty line. Shiloh Turner will talk about how Cincinnati Preschool Promise is helping to overcome these obstacles with scholarships and grants to preschool programs. As usual, time will be set aside for questions and comments from the audience.
