On My Way Pre-K awards grants to 4-year-olds from low-income families so that they may have access to a high-quality pre-K program the year before they begin kindergarten. Families who receive a grant may use the grant at any approved Madison or Delaware county On My Way Pre-K program.
Applications for On My Way Pre-K can be filled out and submitted online OR a paper copy of the application can be filled out and then mailed, faxed or scanned and emailed to your local intake agent. Please do not complete both an online application and paper application. There are limited slots available in each county so families are encouraged to apply early for best chances.
