Who We Are

Preschool Advantage is a non-profit organization established in 1995 whose mission is to provide tuition for eligible children to attend our partner preschools.  For the 2017-2018 school year we are funding tuitions for 75 children to one of 19 carefully selected partner preschools in Morris and Somerset Counties.

Why Our Mission Is Important

By the age of three, children from lower income families are already developmentally behind their more affluent peers.  Research shows the most efficient and effective way to equalize that shocking gap is to give children a quality preschool education so they can enter kindergarten ready to learn and succeed.  As adults, children who attend a quality preschool are better educated, interact better with others, are healthier, and have higher economic productivity than those who don't get that opportunity.  There are thousands of families in New Jersey who cannot afford to provide their children with early education.  Preschool Advantage is committed to addressing the need, one child at a time.

Preschool Advantage Receives Proceeds of Massey Quick Simon Charity Golf Event

On Tuesday, October 10, 2017, Massey Quick Simon hosted its 7th annual Annual Charitable Golf Outing at Somerset Hills Country Club.  The weather was glorious, and 23 foursomes of Massey Quick Simon money managers, clients and staff enjoyed a wonderful day of golf.  At the evening award's dinner, Preschool Advantage was thrilled to be presented with a check for the proceeds of the event, which will provide funding for 15 students to attend preschool.  ​Preschool Advantage is proud of its partnership with Massey Quick Simon, an organization that truly understands the importance and value of giving back to their community.
