Newark Preschool Council, Inc

over fifty years of service


As one of the oldest and largest Head Start grantee agencies in the State of New Jersey and the nation, Newark Preschool Council, Inc. (NPC) has made an indelible footprint in the City of Newark. As a tenured organization having served thousands of children and their families, our influence will continue to impact this community for generations to come.
For almost 50 years, the agency has helped numerous parents obtain an education that has helped them to become gainfully employed. Generations of families, as well as countless others, have benefited from our services and have had their lives positively transformed. Our legacy reflects the support and success of children who have gone on to realize careers such as doctors, lawyers, police officers, business owners and educators in the City of Newark and beyond.


where we are

Sad-Boy wide

On June 30, 2014, Newark Preschool Council, Inc. did not receive funding to continue Head Start services in the City of Newark. From the beginning, NPC played an integral role in giving hope for a better life to the children and families who were marginalized by society
NPC will continue to stand in the gap and reinvent a strategy that serves the needs of our growing community. We will rebuild in a manner that continues to be collaborative, compassionate, and sensitive to the needs of our community.

What’s Next

Newark Preschool Council, Inc. has consistently provided exceptional services to Newark children and their families. We will continue to collaborate with the educational stakeholders who support the agency’s capacity to provide quality services. As part of our rebuilding effort, we will further develop early learning initiatives that support parents as they advocate on behalf of their children. Your continued support and advocacy will be appreciated as we plan the next 50 years of service to the City of Newark.
