Lamoille North Universal PreKindergarten 

What is publicly funded prekindergarten education?

Publicly funded prekindergarten is defined as:

  • Ten hours per week (for 35 weeks) of developmentally appropriate early learning experiences that is based on Vermont’s Early Learning Standards.
  • Children who reside in Belvidere, Cambridge, Eden, Hyde Park, Johnson, and Waterville and are between the ages of three and five before September 1, 2019 are eligible.  Prekindergarten education is limited to the academic school year  (September 2019-June 2020)

What Should LNSU Families Know About Universal/Publicly Funded Prekindergarten?

  • Children must be at least 3 years old before Sept. 1, 2019 to qualify for prekindergarten funding.
  • Publicly-funded prekindergarten services can be found in schools and qualified community-based programs (homes and centers).  This link will bring you to a list of qualified pre-k providers in VT. http://education.vermont.gov/act-166  (scroll down the page to List of Pre-qualified Providers
  • The state tuition rate paid to community-based private pre-k providers on behalf of children attending prekindergarten during the 2019-2020 school year is $3,356.00
  • If a program you register for is full, your child will be placed on a waiting list.

How do I register?  

  • If your child is going to attend a qualified prekindergarten program outside of the school (in the community) you will have to enroll with both the program/provider (for your child’s place in the program) and with your school district (to ensure tuition funding for your child is sent to the program).  If your child is going to attend a prekindergarten program offered in the school by the school district, contact your local school about the enrollment process.
