Malden Delegation Celebrates $750000 Grant to Expand Preschool Access


"Access to high-quality, affordable early education enhances the cognitive and social-emotional development of young children, enables parents to work and improves families' economic well-being, and helps employers that are struggling with workforce shortages," says state Sen.

Jason Lewis in a press release announcing a $750,000 state grant to the Malden Public Schools to expand preschool opportunities for 3- and 4-year-olds.

The Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care's Commonwealth Preschool Partnerships Initiative grants are intended to expand "high-quality pre-kindergarten or preschool opportunities for 3- and 4-year-old children who will be eligible for kindergarten by September 2024 and September 2025," per the press release.

Malden Public Schools will use the money to partner with local preschools and bring counseling to preschoolers, as well as expand access to high-quality curriculum and other resources, per the Boston Globe.

"I'm thrilled that Malden is receiving this sizable state grant to continue its efforts expanding access to high-quality preschool for Malden families," says State Rep.

Steven Ultrino.

"I am excited to see continued investments in our early education system so that our children have a strong foundation for kindergarten and their futures beyond."
