What is On My Way Pre-K (OMWPK) ?
OMWPK provides grants for four-year-olds from low-income families, so they may have access to high-quality Pre-K programs the year before they begin kindergarten. The program is flexible and is built around the needs of families, offering options for full-day or partial-day programs. To participate in the program, your child must turn four years old by August 1st of the upcoming school year in order to qualify.
