The School Readiness Preschool Program is a state funded program. The program is provided at no cost to students who qualify. Children must be four years old on or before September 1st of the school calendar year to enroll. The parent must provide transportation to and from the program location.
Our application for fall preschool becomes available in March. Please note that our preschool funding comes from a legislative grant. Depending on the decisions made during the legislative session each year, the number of students we can enroll may vary and our school locations may change. These decisions are not finalized until summer. So you are welcome to apply before June, but please know that things may change after we get our final funding notification in June. Thank you for understanding!
