Spurred and led by the Montgomery County Commission, the Preschool Promise began as a pilot program in the Kettering School District in 2014. In 2016, the initiative expanded to Northwest Dayton, and, beginning in 2017-18, the effort will be offered throughout Dayton. This citywide expansion was made possible by the voters of Dayton, who overwhelming approved Issue 9 in November 2016. That 1/4 percent income tax increase supports city services and the Preschool Promise.
The goal is to ultimately make the Preschool Promise available to all families in Montgomery County. We want to ensure that every 4-year-old child has the opportunity to attend at least one year of affordable Preschool at a Star Rated program.
