Pre-K Eligibility

PreK For All Programs

Rena Currently offers 2 different PreK For All: Full Day PreK and Extended Day/Year PreK For All .

Pre-K Extended Day/Year

This is available for four year old to families that qualify for free or low-cost care.

Your family may qualify for Extended day/year care if at least one of these categories applies to you:
- You are enrolling a child who is in foster care
- You are enrolling a child with an active Child Welfare case, preventive and/or protective
- You receive public assistance and are compliant with HRA's work activities
- Your family's income falls below a certain amount and you have an approved "reason for care":
. You work 20+ hours per week
. You are in an educational or vocational training program
. You have been looking for work for up to 6 months
. You live in temporary housing
. You are attending services for domestic violence

These pre-K extended day/year programs are funded by the Federal Child Care and Development Block Grant. Because of the requirements of this Federal funding, you must provide proof that your child is a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or lawful permanent resident or refugee to be eligible for these particular programs. Documentation is only needed for the child in need of child care; you will not be asked for the immigration status of anyone else in your household, including your status.

Documentation for the child in need of care can be one of the following: a U.S. birth certificate, U.S. passport, naturalization certificate, alien registration card (including permanent resident or green card), or Form FS-240 (report of birth abroad of a U.S. citizen).
