    Bills covering a range of kindergarten and early education issues are coming up for a public hearing at the Massachusetts Statehouse.

    About 30 bills including several that would set out a path for universal pre-kindergarten in Massachusetts are on tap for the hearing Tuesday morning before the Legislature's Education Committee.

    Another bill would create a grant program to help schools improve literacy programs in elementary schools.

    Other bills would establish a task force on child development information for parents, provide pre-kindergarten education for 4-year-old children in the state's "gateway communities," and come up with regulations for the Department of Early Education and Care to license au pair and nanny agencies.
