Public funding available for prekindergarten
St. George and Williston children between the ages of three and five are eligible for public funding for preschool for the 2013-2014 school year.
Publicly funded prekindergarten is defined as six to 10 hours of developmentally appropriate early learning experiences based on Vermont’s early learning standards.
Chittenden South Supervisory Union’s publicly funded prekindergarten programs are located in community private early care and education programs that meet specific quality standards, and a classroom in each of the kindergarten through grade 8 schools within the supervisory union. CSSU partners with more than 20 community early care and education programs, including the Bellwether School, Heartworks and Kinderstart.
The prekindergarten program offered in the public school is tuition free. The prekindergarten program offered through a community early care and education program may charge families the difference between their actual cost of providing the prekindergarten program and what CSSU pays. Families would continue to be charged fully for whatever care and education program the child attends beyond the 10 hours per week during the academic year. CSSU recommends that parents contact the prekindergarten program directly for information about tuition.
To apply, contact Wendy Clark at 383-1235 or [email protected], or visit the Chittenden South Supervisory Union website at www.cssu.org.
