Pre-K enrollment to increase in Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — More of Alabama’s children are taking advantage of Pre-K programs. The Department of Children’s Affairs says it expects to see a 40-percent increase in enrollment for the next school year. That’s thanks to more funding to the program.

Grant money is allowing the department to form Pre-K programs at 93 new schools across the state. Currently, 3,900 children participate in voluntary Pre-K programs at 217 sites in Alabama. That number should rise by 1,670 children next school year.
