Preschool scholarships available

To the Editor:

There are approximately 2,000 days between birth and the first day of Kindergarten. Building Families’ Early Childhood Area Board would like to make sure all children are healthy and successful. They are making that happen by offering income based preschool scholarships to children ages 3 to 5 that do not attend a Statewide Voluntary Preschool program. All children deserve the opportunities that get them ready for Kindergarten and to be healthy and successful.

Scholarship Applications are now available for the 2014-15 school year. To be eligible families must complete the application in its entirety, meet Federal Income Guidelines and live or attend preschool in Hamilton, Humboldt, or Wright County. If you have questions regarding this program or would like an application please call Amy Shannon, the Scholarship Coordinator at (515) 602-6371 or contact your local preschool. The application is also available to download on the Building Families Website www.buildingfamilies.net.
