UNH gets $4 million Preschool Development Grant
DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — The University of New Hampshire is getting nearly $4 million to research the development of a plan for a comprehensive and coordinated early childhood care and education system.
The Preschool Development Grant from the Department of Health and Human Services was announced by U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan.
They said the federal funding will help expand preschool programs to more families, and that access to such high-quality education is essential to not only the children’s future success but the strength of the state as a whole.
