PreK All Day
While VPK is a great opportunity, many children and families need more than a half-day program. Some children need extended instructional time and enrichment experiences. Working families typically need a full day of care. The cost of “wrap care” can prevent some children from participating in VPK at all. PreK All Day is a supplement to the VPK program, providing extended learning opportunities and continuity of care.
PreK All Day (PKAD) is offered to families for children enrolled in VPK, but ineligible for ELC’s School Readiness (SR) program. PKAD subsidizes the cost of additional hours of wrap-around care needed before and after the VPK day during the school year and full-time care during the summer before kindergarten. Parents pay a copay based on a sliding scale. PKAD is only available at select early learning centers. This program is funded by the Juvenile Welfare Board.
