About On My Way PreK
On My Way Pre-K provides grants for 4-year-olds from low-income families, so they may have access to high-quality pre-k programs the year before they begin kindergarten. The grants are available in all 92 counties. The program is flexible and is built around the needs of families, offering options for full-day or partial-day programs.
Information for Families
When applications are available, families are chosen on a first come-first served basis in the order in which applications are received. There are limited slots available in each county, so families should apply early for best chances. Applications will be accepted until all available slots have been filled.
Eligible families may use the grant at any approved On My Way Pre-K program. Approved programs may be located in a public or private school, licensed child care center, licensed family home, or registered ministry, as long as the program meets the eligibility requirements and is registered as an On My Way Pre-K provider.
