Free preschool sounds almost too good to be true — especially when you see the nurturing environments, expansive play spaces, and cheerful classrooms at Erie's seven Child Development Centers! But it IS true!

A family of four can make up to $90,000 annually and still qualify for free preschool at CDC! That includes a free and nutritional breakfast, lunch, and snack each day and in-house health and dental screenings each year. 

CDC is enrolling children ages 3, 4 and 5 now for preschool, which starts Aug. 14!

These are high-quality preschools: Every Child Development Center is incredibly diverse, welcoming, and inclusive. Children thrive in vibrant classrooms, on outdoor playgrounds, and enjoy educational opportunities designed to academically and socially prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.
