Kaine Promoting "Start Strong" Preschool Initiative

September 5, 2007

Governor Kaine is hitting the road to promote his "Start Strong" preschool initiative.

Kaine is expected to meet with leaders in Harrisonburg, religious leaders in Herndon, and local elected officials in Newport News, over the next three days.

"Start Strong" is a voluntary program that aims to gradually expand preschool to 17,000 more 4-year-olds who come from families with limited means. It targets children who qualify for reduced-price lunches, which would cover a family of four with an annual income up to about $38,000.

The governor's office says will use the tour to explain how Kaine envisions the program and its implementation.
