Faith Thomas, Pre-K Counts Educational Director

In partnership with the Lampeter-Strasburg School District, OHLA provides FREE full-day pre-kindergarten for eligible families. This program welcomes children who will be three or four years of age on or before September 1.

Lampeter-Strasburg Pre-K Counts is now accepting enrollments for the 2024-2025 school year. The program follows the L-S School District calendar. Students attend the program Monday through Friday for five and a half hours each day (8:00 am to 1:30 pm). They receive all materials and lunch at no cost to families. Transportation is the responsibility of the family. There is no busing offered for this program.

The Pre-K Counts program was established in Pennsylvania in 2007 to create an opportunity for eligible 3- and 4-year-old children to access high-quality, publicly funded pre-k. Classes are staffed by PA State-certified early childhood teachers and qualified early-childhood teaching assistants. The PA Department of Education Office of Child Development and Early Learning provides funding for the Pre-K Counts program.
