On My Way Pre-K

On My Way Pre-K

On My Way Pre-K provides grants for 4-year-olds from low-income families, so they may have access to high-quality pre-k programs the year before they begin kindergarten. The program is flexible and is built around the needs of families, offering options for full-day or partial-day programs. Families can also choose to use the program only during the school year or they can continue through the summer. Eligible families may use the grant at any approved On My Way Pre-K program. Approved programs may be located in a public or private school, licensed child care center, licensed family home, or registered ministry, as long as the program meets the eligibility requirements and is registered as an On My Way Pre-K provider.

Vary Depending on the chosen facility.
