On My Way Pre-K applications for the 2018-2019 school year are now available for families in Allen County.
Fort Wayne Community Schools will be accepting On My Way Pre-K grants beginning in the fall at all Title I pre-K locations.
The pilot prekindergarten program is Indiana's first state-funded program that helped out more than 2,400 kids in Allen, Jackson, Lake, Mario and Vanderburgh counties.
If you live in Allen County, you must meet these eligibility criteria to apply:
This year, Adams and Bloomingdale elementary schools accepted the grants as a pilot program. Next year, all 17 elementary schools with Title I pre-K will have spots available for students qualifying for the grant.
Approved pre-K programs may be located in a public or private school, licensed child care center, licensed home or registered ministry as long as that program meets the quality requirements and is registered as an On My Way Pre-K Provider.
Families may choose from a program that is full-day or part-day, as well as from programs that end with the school year or continue through the summer. A list of approved pre-K providers can be found here.
If you need help finding an approved pre-K program, you can also call 1-800-299-1627 for assistance from an early learning referral specialist.
