Investing in our future with On-My-Way Pre-K

INDIANA – It’s not too late to sign your four-year-old up for the State’s free On-My-Way Pre-K program that provides high-quality Pre-K to 4-year-olds in Indiana.

Audio: Around the House: State Reps. Bob Behning and Julie McGuire discuss how this important initiative is paying dividends for families and students across Indiana.  

Pre-K offers Hoosier children an opportunity to socialize, learn and explore, which helps prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.

According to State Representative Julie Mcguire of Indianapolis and a member of the House Education Committee, the On My Way Pre-K Program for eligible 4-year-olds and their families has reached record enrollment – supporting more than 7,500 Hoosier children so far this year, up about 21% from last year.

A long-term study released last year by Purdue University showed that children who attend On My Way Pre-K are better prepared for school and that the benefits continue well into elementary school. The study also showed that the program helps families become more economically self-sufficient by giving parents opportunities to get a job or start school or a training program.
