    Maine's U.S. senators say the state is receiving more than $1 million from the federal government to boost preschools and early education programs in the state.

    Republican Sen. Susan Collins and independent Sen. Angus King say the money is coming to the Maine Department of Education from the Every Student Succeeds Act's Preschool Development Grant program.

    The senators say the grant money will help build early learning systems in the state. The grant program is competitive and managed by the federal government. It's designed to help states improve access to early childhood education for low- and moderate-income children who are age five or younger.
