    The purpose of the Pre-K program is to work with families to provide a complete early childhood program for eligible children who are three or four on or before September 1. Children may qualify based on family income, homeless, military status or non English speaking. Children are provided many opportunities to stimulate learning in all developmental areas; physical, social, emotional and intellectual.
