The Community College of Rhode Island has partnerships with two preschool centers located at our campuses. Imagine Preschool is at the CCRI Knight Campus in Warwick and Ready to Learn Providence is located at the CCRI Liston Campus in Providence. The Rhode Island Department of Education selected these programs to operate two of 13 classrooms in the state-funded Pre-Kindergarten Project, which got underway in 2009. Pre-K classrooms adhere to 10 national benchmarks that help to ensure quality of teacher credentials, class size, staff to child ratios and health screenings. The project is designed to demonstrate the value of high-quality early childhood education. Children are chosen by lottery. Imagine Preschool also operates a second classroom that is not part of the state project.
