School Readiness

School Readiness programs have been designed to prepare children for school, particularly those from income-eligible families.  These programs are intended to serve as a preventive measure for children at risk of future school failure.  Priority for school readiness program participation is given to children whose parents are economically disadvantaged, children who have been determined to be at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, and children with special needs.

Our Board of Directors passed two important policies for School Readiness Providers: School Readiness Funded Provider license Policy and the Child Safety and Licensing Policy.


To apply for School Readiness visit Florida's Early Learning Family Portal and fill out the online application.
