There’s much to do. To make high-quality Pre‑K available for every four-year-old child in Forsyth County, we’ll need to improve quality in existing classrooms, create additional facilities, hire more teachers and help all teachers become more qualified, better compensate teachers, and establish an administrative structure to ensure uniform practices and positive outcomes in every corner of the County.
We know what needs to be done and how to do it. But to make this vision a reality, we need to call for support from elected officials, business and civic leaders, and people committed to the well-being of our community.
The time has come for Forsyth County to take this step on behalf of its youngest children. Because our future is currently four years old—and how it grows depends on us.
Spread the word within your circle of influence and through social media with the help of the Communications Toolkit which includes talking points, frequently asked questions, social media posts (post #PreKProud, #PreK4All), and more.
We encourage those who support high-quality Pre‑K for all four-year-olds in our community to talk with those in their spheres of influence about how important it is to invest early in our children’s future. Our talking points provide valuable information to share.read TALKING POINTSDownload PDF of Talking Points
