Pre-K Counts Program



Dear Parents/Guardians,

          Mechanicsburg Area Parks and Recreation is excited to announce our new PA Pre-K Counts Program being offered for the 2021/2022 school year. This is a free preschool program for qualifying families. Income requirements can be found on the application. We have worked closely with the Mechanicsburg Area School District to ensure our curriculum aligns with the Kindergarten Academy. We offer a half-day program for 3-year-olds from 8:00am-11:30am and a full-day program for 4-year-olds from 8:00am-1:30pm. Our program begins on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.  Applications are accepted throughout the school year.


         Completed enrollment packets can be sent to or mailed/dropped off to the Trails and Trees Environmental Center located at 1731 S. York St. Mechanicsburg, Pa 17055. In your enrollment packet, you will find:

  •     PA Pre-K Counts Application
  •     Emergency Contact/Parental Consent Form
  •     Photo/Video Consent Form
  •     Health Assessment

*Please attach a copy of your child’s birth certificate and a copy of your most recent W-2 forms (preferred) or current pay stubs (at least 2) to your completed enrollment packet.


        We look forward to working with you and your family! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by phone at 717-691-4572 or email
