"Recognizing the importance of early education, Gov. Rick Scott is recommending $1.1 billion in funding for early child education and care. If approved, this funding will provide young children and working families preschool tuition assistance and Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) services. Additional funding is especially important in Miami-Dade, where we serve more young children than any other area in Florida."
