Children must be three (3) years old on or before September 1st of the current school year in order to qualify for the preschool program.  Our school year is from July 1st to June 30th. [MB 14-02]

Our program offers subsidized child care services and families must be income eligible to qualify for the program. Families are Eligible for services when their adjusted monthly income is at or below the Seventieth percentile (70%) of the state median income adjusted for the family size [MB 17-08]. Families must also have a “Need” for services i.e. employment, enrolled in school working towards a vocational goal, seeking employment or housing, or be deemed at-risk or receiving child protective services.

* Limited funding is available for children ages two and a half years (2.5) through 3 year old children that do not qualify for the current preschool program.

Wait List/Eligibility List

There is a great demand for our services and unfortunately we are not able to serve all families who apply. However, families are ranked according to family size and income.

Prioritization is based on the following criteria: [Title 5, 18131]

First priority for services shall be given to a four year old or three-year old who is receiving child care services through the department of public and social services, child protective services, at risk or homeless.

Second priority shall be given to eligible four year old children in the following order:

1)      A child whose family have the lowest income ranking.

2)      When two or more families have the same income ranking:

               a. The child with exceptional needs shall be admitted first.

               b. Children who are identified as limited English or non- English proficient

               c. Children whose circumstances may diminish the children’s opportunities for normal development

Third priority shall be given to three year old children, after all eligible four year old children are enrolled Children are selected in the following order:

1)      A child whose family have the lowest income ranking.

2)      When two or more families have the same income ranking:

               a. The child with exceptional needs shall be admitted first.

               b. Children who are identified as limited English or non- English proficient

               c. Children whose circumstances may diminish the children’s opportunities for normal development

Fourth priority shall be given to eligible four-year old children choosing to enroll in the part day preschool program meeting eligibility criteria.

* Children with siblings currently enrolled in the program are given priority over new families.

When an opening for childcare become available, the eligibility technician will select the family with the lowest ranking number. Should that family no longer need care; the next family will be selected.

Application Process


Step 1: Apply

Community members must fill out the Pre-Enrollment Form if child meets the age eligibility criteria, income criteria, and the “Need” criteria. Completeness on all Pre-Enrollment Forms is necessary for assignment of a ranking number.

 

Step 2: Selection process

Once your application is received, the Eligibility Technician will review it and may call you to verify information on your Pre-Enrollment application. Once there is an opening, the applicant will be contacted by phone or email to pick-up a registration packet. Applicants will have two (2) business days to respond and arrange a time to pick up a registration packet. Failing to respond and arrange a time to pick up a registration packet will result in losing the offered opening for your child and the opening will be offered to the next person on the Wait List. Your registration packet must be completed including all required documents and returned within five (5) business days to continue the registration process. Failure to do so will result in losing the offered opening for your child. Within two to three working days of receiving your registration packet, the front office will be contacting you to schedule an appointment for an intake interview to establish eligibility and enrollment.  
 

Step 3: Certification and enrollment

At the intake appointment, applicants will be notified of acceptance into the program. Contract hours will be established, if applicable family fee will be established, and initial enrollment date. This process includes an orientation, meeting your child’s teacher, and a tour of the school. It is recommended that children not attend this appointment. The intake appointment takes approximately forty- five minutes to an hour.

Family Fees

Family state fees are assessed using the State Monthly Income Ceilings Scale (MB 18-03). Family fees are determined at the time of enrollment and are base on the family most recent income. Initial family fees are paid on or before the child’s initial enrollment date and monthly in advance of services thereafter.

Children Schedules

Child care schedules are determined by the eligibility specialist at the time of the intake appointment. Contract hours are determined by the “Need” of the family and include travel time.
