INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning is now accepting applications for the On My Way Pre-K program for the 2017-2018 academic year. The initiative to provide high-quality education for children from low-income families will continue in five pilot counties.

Families in Allen, Jackson, Lake and Vanderburgh counties must have an income below 127 percent of the federal poverty level. Children must also be four years-old by August 1 and starting pre-K in 2017 and kindergarten in 2018.

In Marion County, the same criteria applies, but the city of Indianapolis is once again providing additional funding through the Indy Preschool Scholarship Program. Families can apply for both the On My Way Pre-K and Indy PSP programs is one application, however the Indy PSP extends eligibility in Marion County to children who are three or four years-old from families living at or below 185 of the federal poverty level.

Families have until March 31 to submit applications. You can click here to find more information on applying in each county.

This will be the third full year of the On My Way Pre-K program. More than 2,400 children are currently participating in the second full year of the program and will begin kindergarten this July or August.
