Universal Pre-K Chicago

Universal Pre-K for Chicago

Early education is a necessity for every child. Mayor Rahm Emanuel unveiled plans to implement universal, full-day pre-kindergarten for 4-year-olds, starting by expanding to 3,700 additional children this fall 2018 in CPS.

Access to universal, free full-day pre-kindergarten will roll out over the next four years, prioritizing communities most in need. By 2021, pre-kindergarten will be universal for all 4-year-olds in Chicago.
