The research is undeniable: A child who receives a quality early childhood education is starting school with an unmistakable chance of success – not just in school, but in life.

Too many of the children who live in the Columbus City Schools district come to kindergarten at a distinct disadvantage. We have the power to change this – to ensure that every child comes to school ready to learn and enters a system ready to help them achieve from their first day in school.  

Columbus is committed to giving our children every chance to succeed. By expanding high-quality prekindergarten services, Columbus children will not only improve readiness for kindergarten, but will be able to accelerate learning and academic performance beyond kindergarten. The school district alone cannot provide all the preschool services needed. The city, private sector, non-profits, and faith-based organizations must get involved.
