Plaquemines Parish PreK

Plaquemines Parish PreK is a state funded program that promotes school readiness to 4 year old children from disadvantaged families along with a limited number of over-income families.  We offer a learning environment that supports children's growth in many areas, such as language, literacy, and social and emotional development.
We provide services to 140 age 4 children from families who are Plaquemines Parish residents.  Our PreKs operate five days a week within local schools.  We follow the Plaquemines Parish School Board school calendar.
