Alabama’s high-quality, voluntary First Class Pre-K program provides effective, high quality early childhood experiences that prepare children for school success and lifelong learning. First Class Pre-K is administered by the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education.

The Department of Early Childhood Education uses a “diverse delivery” grant structure to create high-quality, state-funded First Class Pre-K classrooms for four-year-olds in public schools, Head Start and private programs (such as child care and faith-based centers).
