The Rutledge Institute for Early Childhood Education preschool, located on the campus of California University of Pennsylvania, recently celebrated the graduation of 10 children. It’s off to kindergarten for the Class of 2021 this fall.


Gwendolyn Davis smiles as her Rutledge Institute preschool class lines up for graduation.

The institute, funded through a gift from Karen and Tom Rutledge, brings teachers from The Village, a nationally accredited childhood education center located in California, Pa., to campus to provide high-quality preschool education to eligible children ages 3-5.

All children attending the Rutledge Institute preschool receive full scholarships. Beginning in Fall 2021, the number of children will double — from 20 to 40 — and each will receive a hot lunch. For enrollment information, visit, email or call 724-938-5455.
