On My Way Pre-K provides grants to eligible families seeking high-quality early childhood education for their 4-year-old child. Eligible children must attend an On My Way Pre-K approved program in Monroe or Vigo County and have a household income at or below 127% of the federal poverty guideline–about $30,000 for a family of four.
Recently passed legislation has updated family eligibility for the 2017-2018 school year. Families will now need to verify that they are working and/or attending an accredited or certified education/training program to be eligible for this grant. Families can contact intake agents for details about this additional eligibility requirement and for information about other subsidized, free pre-K options if needed.
Once a child has received a grant, parents may choose from any of the approved On My Way Pre-K programs. Indiana’s Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning is currently enrolling high-quality programs which are either top-ranked at level 3 or level 4 on Paths to QUALITY™ or are accredited by an approved national or regional accrediting body.
