Why Support Durham PreK?

Durham County’s investment in pre-K not only benefits 4-year-olds and their families, but also the community as a whole. Research shows for every $1 invested in early childhood, there is a $8 return on investment when those children become working adults. Public pre-K also allows parents to work more hours. Your support of Durham PreK will support child development, the local work force, and the future of Durham County!
