   State Preschool Program

 State Preschool is currently full. In order         for your child to be placed on a waitlist, he/she must meet all the State requirements and complete the registration process.


Registration Procedures


Step 1:

In order to begin the registration process, you must complete a State Preschool Initial Eligibility Survey. Click on the link under the next paragraph to complete the survey.


You will also need to email one month’s worth of documentation for anyone in the family that receives income to This includes employment paystubs, child support, alimony, unemployment, retirement, etc . If you are self-employed, you will need to email the previous year’s tax return (page 1 and profit and loss page) and the current year’s estimated profit/quarterly tax statement. If you are an Uber/Lyft driver, you will need to email the initial employment letter and four month’s worth of income documentation. You will also need to print, complete and email a “self-certification of income” form. You can print that form here.
