Your play helps four-year-olds get ready for school

August 1, 2022 Posted by NC Lottery at 10:41 AM

Summer break is almost over and our kids will soon start back at school.

Here at the lottery we couldn’t be prouder to help support learning all across our state, even for our youngest learners. Sometimes four-year-olds need that extra “something” to get them ready for kindergarten and beyond.

The NC Pre-K program provides a stellar program for some of our littlest learners to get the leg up they need in their academic career. Your lottery helps fund this NC Pre-K program, every year. Learn more about the program here.

Last year, $78 million raised by the lottery helped send 12,229 four-year-olds to NC Pre-K programs in all counties of our state. You can see how many of those kids were from your county on our Education page.

Another $78 million of the money raised by the lottery will support the Pre-K program this school year and an additional $78 million next school year.

Did your little (or now big) one benefit from attending Pre-K? We’d love to hear about it! Leave us a comment to share your story.
