McCracken Preschool recently received a $150,000 grant from the Kentucky Department of Education in support of the county’s preschools and childcare centers.

Grant writer Genevieve Postlethwait said the preschool intends to invest the money in partnerships between private and public childcare centers and professional development for teachers. She said training will help teachers and childcare providers better prepare students for kindergarten.

Postlethwait said most of the children who attend McCracken county preschools are from low-income families or have special needs.

She said the school will also put some of the money toward STEM classroom materials.
