QUALITY PRESCHOOL DISCUSSION IN CEDAR FALLS
Des Moines, IA- State and local officials in the Cedar Valley area are hosting a public meeting on Iowa’s statewide quality preschool program on Saturday, April 16 at the Cedar Falls Library.
“Hundreds of many middle class families rely on Iowa’s statewide, voluntary preschool programs in the Cedar Valley community. Further, research has found that quality preschool produces some of the best returns from state investments in our children and future workforce,” said State Rep. Bob Kressig of Cedar Falls.
The discussion will be led at 10AM at the Cedar Falls Library (524 Main Street) by the Cedar Fall’s community schools to address the excellent education opportunities available for Iowa four year olds. Teachers and leaders of the Waterloo and Cedar Falls public school district’s preschool program will be on hand to answer questions.
“Children in quality learning environments are less likely to drop out of school, less likely to repeat a grade, less likely to need special education, and less likely to get into trouble with the law. All of Iowa’s hard working families deserve this opportunity for their children,” said Rep. Deb Berry of Waterloo.
“I’ve seen the progress our preschool initiative is making first-hand and it’s making a big difference in the lives of thousands of Iowa kids. I hope interested citizens and parents will attend this event and learn more about Iowa’s successful preschool initiative that will affect Iowa’s longstanding excellence in education,” concluded Rep. Anesa Kajtazovic of Waterloo.
