The Universal Pre-School Support Program was implemented to help families supplement costs for basic pre-school services for Orleans children, ages 3 and 4. 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.
Funding is only provided for the length of the school year: September 1st - June 20th. Summer programming is not eligible.
The age of your child on August 31st will determine the age group in which they will remain for the entirety of the school year, even if they have a birthday mid-year.
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.
