Pre-K Program Expanding

- A new partnership is expanding pre-k education to the city of Erie. Mercyhurt University is partnering with Early Connections and Erie's public schools to accommodate more students.

The expansion will open up around 100 more slots to eligible families as well as add classrooms in seven area schools. The partnership has also allowed for full-day programming without an increase in funding.

Dr. Thomas Gamble, Mercyhurst University President said this about the program "Which is really important because we got for forty years of good clear scientific research that pre-school makes a huge difference in the lives of young people "
