All children need to be age eligible (4 years by September 1st) to qualify.
The program is free and income level will be the primary factor needed for determining eligibility and prioritization for enrollment of children who live in families at or below 250% Federal Poverty Level.
Any child from a family above 250% Federal Poverty Level will be required to pay tuition based on a sliding scale fee and must have at least 2 of any of the following risk factors:
Diagnosed disability or developmental delay
Severe or challenging behavior
Primary home language other than English
Parent/guardian who did not graduate from high school
Abuse/neglect of child or parent
Environmental risk such as parental loss due to death, divorce, incarceration, military service, or absence
Programs maintain a 1:8 ratio as required by the State of Michigan and are run by highly qualified and certified teachers.
Classes meet Monday through Thursday at all locations. Times vary from one district to another.
