  1. Hello,
    My son will be 3 in April 2021. I was wondering when I should apply for the Preschool Promise scholarship. I want to get ahead of the game but not sure how early I can apply. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    1. Hello Brittany. Please contact your preferred center or Preschool Promise for additional information. Thank you.
