Can access to quality preschool make a difference in the life of a child or the future of a community?
Clyde Gray hosts The Power of Preschool: Cincinnati, a look at the concept of universal preschool, how other cities have successfully mounted initiatives, and what a Preschool Promise program could look like in Cincinnati.
During the program, community leaders and local experts in the field of early education discuss the importance of quality preschool. Guests include Dr. O’dell Owens, Medical Director at the Cincinnati Health Department; John Pepper, former CEO of P&G; David Mann, Cincinnati Council Member and Vice Mayor; and Stephanie Byrd, Executive Director of United Way’s Success by 6 and Executive Director of The Preschool Promise.
