Scholarships for Winter & Spring
School Readiness is a public school early childhood program that provides early childhood education opportunities and parent support. School Readiness Scholarships for limited spaces in Small Wonders Preschool are available for families with children who are 3 or 4 years old on September 1st of the school year they would attend. Families must meet a variety of risk factors to qualify for a scholarship.
If awarded, placements in Small Wonders are based on the child and family needs, as well as available openings. School Readiness will do their best to enroll your child, but space is limited. Please inquire and apply early, as waitlists can begin as early as May for the following school year.
In order to serve as many children as possible, scholarships are generally for partial day/partial week preschool classes.
Children DO need to be toilet trained and tend to their toileting needs independently. This means: no pull-ups or diapers can be worn at school, the child can communicate to teachers and staff that they have to use the bathroom, and are able to use the bathroom without a teacher or staff present.
Busing is not provided: parents are responsible for dropping off and picking up their children from school.
Questions about scholarships can be directed to Kathryn McLaughlin, Early Childhood Family Outreach Specialist.
