Who We Are

Preschool Advantage is a non-profit organization established in 1995 whose mission is to improve our communities by funding quality preschool for three and four year old children of families in need.  For the 2016-2017 school year we will send 70 children to 17 carefully selected partner preschools in Morris and Somerset Counties.
 

Why Our Mission Is Important

By the age of three, children from lower income families are already developmentally behind their more affluent peers.  Research shows the most efficient and effective way to equalize that shocking gap is to give children a quality preschool education so they can enter kindergarten ready to learn and succeed.  As adults, children who attend a quality preschool are better educated, interact better with others, are healthier, and have higher economic productivity than those who don't get that opportunity.  There are thousands of families in New Jersey who cannot afford to provide their children with early education.  Preschool Advantage is committed to addressing the need, one child at a time.
