Universal Pre-K Program

**Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be available after July 1st

The Town Meeting on October 25, 2021 approved the article to fund the Universal Pre-School Support Program which will pay for basic pre-school services for 3 and 4 year old residents of the Town of Orleans. Up to a maximum of $10,000 will be provided per school year for 4-year-olds and $5,000 per school year for 3-year-olds. Eligibility is based on the child's age by August 31st of the school year in which you are enrolling. 

Upon receipt of your application and verification of your eligibility, we can begin payment directly to any licensed provider who is enrolled in the program. 

The school/provider will bill the Town directly for services rendered on a monthly basis. Any services over the allotted amount will be the responsibility of the child's family.

Please note:

  • Submission of a complete application with the necessary documents attached is required to be considered for funding.
  • A child in the 3 year old group is eligible for funding up to 4 hours per day. A child in the 4 year old group is eligible for funding up to 7 hours per day. Any services over the allotted amount will be the responsibility of the child's family.
  • Your child must be currently enrolled or scheduled for enrollment at the licensed school/provider before submitting your application.
