PACE is a strong supporter of quality preschool education opportunities for all children in Pulaski County.
Through a collaboration between Purdue University and PACE, Preschool and Kindergarten educators are working toward uniformity of expectations for students and certification for preschools. Two years into this program has produced positive results toward these goals.
In 2019, PACE announced a new educational program, "Little Learner's Passport," designed to motivate Pulaski County four-year-olds to work toward kindergarten readiness. The booklet lists 100 activities/experiences for four-year-olds to undertake with parental guidance. Incentives are provided along the way with a final award upon successful enrollment in kindergarten.
