Preschool for All Grant
TOPS Pre-K is a recipient of the Illinois Preschool for All grant, which focuses on high-quality educational programs for children who are determined to be “at-risk” due to a wide variety of factors. A few examples of these factors are: low to moderate income families, families where English is not the primary language spoken at home, and single parent/blended families. Students must be “at-risk” and at least 3 years old to enroll in the Preschool for All program. For more information about Preschool for All, click here:
Preschool for All Registration Process
Preschool for All registration is a two-step process. Parents begin by completing an Eligibility Packet, which will be mailed to your home. Please note that we have limited space and not every student who qualifies will be able to secure a spot in the program. The most at-risk children with the greatest number of eligibility criteria are enrolled first, and four year olds (age four on or before September 1st of the current school year) get priority over three year olds. We must have your mailing address, your child’s name and date of birth, and parent name and phone number, to assemble an Eligibility Packet for you.
Registration for preschool begins each February for the following school year. Please contact Ms. Tosado at 847-675-7666 EXT 1075 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an eligibility packet.
The registration events for the 18-19 school year will be:
February 13th from 10am – 6pm
February 28th from 4pm – 8pm
