Through this PA Pre-K Counts program my son has not only made friends, he has found his voice. Before coming to Ms. Kim’s room, he said almost nothing. After just a few short months, he has such a large vocabulary and is learning more words every day!
We will forever be grateful for this program and the teachers.

The program helped my daughter, Aubree, be more confident about learning. She comes home every day and loves to tell me all the new things she has learned and about all her friends.
My child has had many changes that I have noticed since she came to the PA Pre-K Counts program and the main thing is her independence. I have noticed she like to do a lot of things on her own.
Another thing I noticed was her social skills have gotten better. She is also learning how to adapt to change a lot easier and I just think that the program all together is a good experience and also great communication.
Taytum has grown so much this year. She continues to amaze me every day.
We have Mrs. Gerdich to thank for being an amazing teacher.
We love this PA Pre-K Counts program and are going to miss it next year when she goes to Kindergarten.
I think you are all doing a wonderful job. Kelsey is lucky to be a part of the PA pre-K Counts program. I love the pre-K program that my daughter is so lucky to be a part of. She loves school and looks forward to every single day!
Mrs. Gerdich and Mrs. Denne are amazing. Kelsey has learned how to play well with others, take turns and be respectful to others. They do so many fun, exciting and educational things with their class. They follow a routine and are very organized. My daughter absolutely loves her teachers and her pre-K class. Kelsey knows all her classmates by name and she enjoys playing and learning with all of them.
I am very confident that at the end of pre-K, she will be ready for kindergarten.
This PA Pre-K Counts program has really brought my daughter out of her shy shell.
She is an only child for now, and being around the other kids every day and interacting with teacher and children away from me has been great for her. She started out not wanting to come to school and now she cannot wait to go.
She is learning so much and she is so proud to share what she has learned with us.
We could not be happier with her progress.
Having this PA Pre-K Counts program has allowed my son to begin to learn in a more structured fashion. At home he does not like to be as focused and independent, so the way the class is run allows a bit of both.
Being in the full time class now has put my son leaps ahead in certain areas in only a few short months. It amazes me when he shows the skills he has learned.
I cannot be more thankful for this program. Without it, my son would not be where he is as we would not have been able to put him in preschool. Thank you so much to the teachers and admins who make it possible.

The Pre-K program has been a blessing for our daughter. It has allowed her an early start in learning all of the skills she will need to know for kindergarten. It has also provided her with the opportunity for socialization with other children.

I think my son is really benefiting from the Pre-K program. He is learning how to interact with the other children in a real elementary school setting. He is (more…)
Head Start has helped my son interact with other kids his age. It has helped him learn how to play and intact with kids his age better seeing he is a only child.
It has also taught him how to listen and behave outside of his normal home environment. It has allowed to sit down and do project with him since he is willing to do more projects if it’s a school project.
It has also began to get my son adapted to school routines in morning such as waking up on time, bath time, and brushing teeth and steady bedtime.
