Various school districts in New Jersey are going to be receiving a second round of taxpayer-funded state aid to improve or expand preschool programs -- and a few of them are right here in Atlantic and Cape May county.

This expansion will benefit 2,320 children in the entire state and the changes that this money will allow for will go into affect this upcoming September when the new school year kicks off. This will be the first time any of these districts received any financial aid for preschool!

“Expanding early childhood education is among the smartest investments we can make for the future of our state,” said Murphy. "Providing children with access to high-quality education is a vital component of building a stronger and fairer New Jersey where children and families can thrive."
