Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley talks preschool in Toledo

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley and Robyn Lightcap, executive director of Dayton’s Preschool Promise, recently presented to Toledo leaders on the city’s strategy to create a program to give all 4-year-olds in the city access to preschool.

Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz campaigned in 2017 with a platform that included figuring out how to offer universal pre-kindergarten education to Toledoans, no matter what their financial situation, according to the The (Toledo) Blade. 

“This is something we need to do if we’re going to compete and beat cities like Dayton for investment and talent and population,” he said, the Blade reported. “By the way, Dayton’s doing this. We’re not. So guess who’s winning that competition?”
