The Preschool Advantage
During the preschool years, children begin to build the brain structures that will help them be successful students. Attending high-quality preschool nurtures this brain development, and can help smooth a child’s transition into kindergarten.
For these reasons and others, children who attend preschool are more likely to become successful students later on. Salem-Keizer Public Schools coordinates four different programs, Tuition-Based Preschool, Title-Funded Preschool, Preschool Promise, and Head Start Preschool, that serve preschool-age children. Programs and locations vary based on school neighborhood and the child’s financial need.
Salem-Keizer Head Start is available to children 3 or 4 years old by September 10th.
