COVID-19 has parents across the country wondering what the upcoming school year will look like for their children. Locally, many preschool and pre-kindergarten programs have been canceled due to the pandemic. This includes the Omaha Public Schools Foundation Parent-Pay Pre-K Program.
These closings are unfortunate because young children who do not attend a Pre-K program are missing out on the many benefits they offer.

In other words, these programs get kids off on the right foot.
