For information about prekindergarten located in your school building contact your local school.
Is this 6-10 hour/week program tuition free?
The prekindergarten program offered in the public school is tuition free. The prekindergarten program offered
through a community early care and education program may charge families the difference between their actual cost
of providing the 6-10 hour prekindergarten program and what Chittenden South Supervisory Union pays. Families
would continue to be charged fully for whatever care and education program the child attends beyond the 10
hours/week during the academic year. We recommend you contact the prekindergarten program directly for
information about tuition.
Is my child eligible for Chittenden South Supervisory Union publicly funded prekindergarten?
If your child is 3 years old by September 1, 2012 and resides in Charlotte, Hinesburg, Shelburne, St. George or
Williston, then your child is eligible to participate.
Please note: If interest in publicly-funded prekindergarten rises above our enrollment cap, then we will need to use
a random selection process (lottery) to determine which children receive publicly funded prekindergarten education.
We will inform you whether your child has a slot by April 15, 2012.
How do I apply? Submit an application form which can be obtained by calling Wendy Clark at 383-1235,
email or the Chittenden South Supervisory Union Website:
