Scholarships

Growing Together Preschool, Inc. values and supports families. We are pleased to offer our families a comprehensive scholarship program. Our ability to offer scholarships is dependent upon the financial condition of the preschool and available scholarship funds.

ELIGIBILITY

Children are eligible for tuition scholarships if they meet the following criteria:

  1. The child has a diagnosed disability and the family agrees to use Growing Together Preschool’s therapists
  2. The child enrolls in Head Start or Early Head Start programs
  3. The child qualifies for Child Care Assistance funding (CCAP)

If any family exceeding income eligibility for CCAP believes that special circumstances affect their ability to pay full tuition, they may describe their situation on this application. Eligible scholarship families with more than one child enrolled at Growing Together Preschool may be awarded scholarships for each child (fill out one application for each child). Scholarship recipients should notify the Executive Director if their financial situation improves midyear, lessening their need for assistance. Scholarship funds do not cover the registration fee, late pickup fees, collection fees, missed days not covered by CCAP, previously paid tuition or any other financial obligation to the preschool. Scholarships are only available for full time enrollment.

CONFIDENTIALITY

Scholarship applications are kept strictly confidential. Financial information is reviewed only by the school’s Executive Director, Finance Director, Education Coordinator, Board Treasurer and Head Start Enrollment Specialist. Scholarship decisions will be communicated to applicants by mail.
