Pre-School Support Program

IMG_0001.jpgWindham Central Supervisory Union is starting a new program for families with preschoolers in the West River Valley towns of Jamaica, Wardsboro, and Townshend. The Preschool Support Program is funded by a state/federal Preschool Expansion Grant. Through this program, families with preschoolers can get help with a variety of needs. The preschool support worker can help families…
  • receive beneficial screenings for their child (hearing, vision, dental, health and developmental)
  • connect to community resources for help with things like housing, food, etc.
  • coordinate/pay for transportation to and from appointments or preschool
In order to be eligible for the Preschool Support Program this coming fall, a child must be 4 years old by September 1st and as mentioned above, be living in Jamaica, Wardsboro, or Townshend. They do not need to be enrolled or planning on enrolling in preschool in order to be eligible, though the program does happen during the school year. This program has income guidelines, but they are broader than the free and reduced lunch program guidelines.

This Preschool Support Program also sponsors family and parent events that are open to all families with preschool-aged children in the three towns. Look for information on these events under the family events subpage on this site. 

The goal of this program is to help support families so that their children can start elementary school off on the right foot.

If you are interested in signing up for the Preschool Support Program or just want more information, please feel free to contact:
