Mississippi receives $10.6M for preschool programs

Governor Phil Bryant says the state is receiving a $10.6 million federal grant for preschool programs.

Bryant announced the grant Wednesday on Twitter. He says it will expand a system developed by his State Early Childhood Advisory Council and the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

The governor says the money will help ‘maximize parental choice and engagement’ with a goal of ensuring children have a smooth transition from child care centers, including head start into public schools.
