Program Eligibility

Our preschool, and child care and development programs are funded under contract with the California State Department of Education. All program eligibility and enrollment processes are defined by guidelines set-forth by the State Department of Education.

Eligibility for part-day preschool programs is based solely on family size and income. All part-day preschool programs are free of charge to eligible families.

Eligibility for full-day preschool or school-age child care is based on family size, income, and need, which is defined as employment, job training, or job search activities. Depending on income, services may be free of charge or have nominal fees based on a sliding scale.

Children are age eligible for part-day or full-day preschool in the two years preceding kindergarten entrance. Children who will be 3 or 4 years of age, on or before September 1st of a program year may be enrolled.

Program services are limited to income eligible families. The chart below lists current maximum income for different family sizes. All family with income at, or below these levels qualify for services.
