On My Way Pre-K provider taking applications

Posted: Thursday, April 18, 2019

On My Way Pre-K at Pathfinder Kids Kampus is a program that allows the early education facility to provide free preschool and child care to four year old children for the 2019-20 school year and through the remainder of the summer of 2020. Pathfinder Kids Kampus is now taking inquiries for free preschool openings.

On My Way Pre-K is a free program for families who qualify and this high-quality preschool option is an essential component to the future success of the children in our community. High quality early childhood education provides opportunities for children to build their language skills, social and emotional skills, math concept awareness, and more, building a foundation for lifelong learning and success.

The program also includes child care outside of the preschool program, allowing the children to benefit from Pathfinder Kids Kampus for up to 50 hours per week. This program runs through August 7, 2020, allowing children to attend up until they begin kindergarten in 2020.

“The On May Way Pre-K kindergarten readiness program is a great service that we are honored to provide here at Pathfinder Kids Kampus,” stated Elizabeth Hire, administrator and Early Head Start director at Pathfinder Kids Kampus. “This year, we have 27 students in our free preschool program who are getting ready to attend kindergarten in the fall. We are now taking initial information from families who are interested and who may qualify for the 2019-20 program.”

To qualify for the free “On My Way Pre-K” preschool, children must be four by August 1, 2019 and must meet income eligibility and service need requirements. Children from Huntington and surrounding counties may apply. Premier Preschool is also available for children three to five years of age and tuition assistance may be available. Both “On My Way Pre-K” and Premier Preschool classrooms start August 7 and run through the 2019-20 school year.
