On September 25th, PRE4CLE will celebrate five years of success with a Birthday Bash to reflect on the accomplishments of the PRE4CLE plan to-date, honor the many partners and supporters who have made those accomplishments possible, and share our vision for the next phase of PRE4CLE’s work.

PRE4CLE will also honor four early learning champions that were a critical part of our success during the past five years. The honorees will include:

Supporting Vibrant Preschool Classrooms

Funds raised from the Birthday Bash will be used to equip high-quality PRE4CLE classrooms with new toys, books, equipment, and other early learning supplies to ensure that teachers have the tools they need to fully implement a high-quality preschool curriculum. While all PRE4CLE classrooms have the markers of high-quality — such as credentialed teachers, a research-based curriculum, and daily outreach to families — many programs struggle to afford updated classroom supplies. Funds from the Birthday Bash will allow PRE4CLE to offer this much-needed support to classrooms throughout the city.
