Mayor Walsh has announced a $15 million plan to establish the “Quality Pre-K Fund” which will guarantee access to free pre-kindergarten (pre-K) for all 4-year-olds living in Boston within the next five years. This announcement was made outside ABCD Grove Head Start, a Dorchester-based community center that offers preschool services.

Walsh believes this program is essential for leveling the playing field from a young age: “There is no better investment we can make than providing our children with high-quality learning opportunities from an early age,” said Mayor Walsh. “We have set a strong foundation over the last several years to offer more high-quality pre-K seats than ever before. I am incredibly proud that the Quality Pre-K Fund will fulfill our commitment of ensuring that every 4-year-old in Boston has access to high-quality pre-kindergarten in a setting that works best for their individual needs.”
