Enrollment Requirements

Enrollment is dependent on income and other factors as determined by the Department of Children and Families Services. 90% of families enrolled in the preschool program attend tuition free. We do reserve 10% of our slots for families who do not meet the income requirements and charge a minimal tuition.

In order to Enroll, families will need to provide the following documents:

  • Parent/Caregivers State ID or Driver’s License

  • Medical Insurance Card for child
  • Child’s Immunization Record
  • Two most recent check stubs, (paid bi-weekly/bi-monthly/monthly); Four most recent check stubs (paid weekly), which must be dated within the last 30 days
