Age eligibility

ECEAP is a free pre-kindergarten program for income-eligible children ages 3 to 5 years and their families. Foster children, Kinship care students, children adopted from Foster or Kinship care, and children on an IEP are automatically eligible for ECEAP. 

To enroll your child must turn 3 by August 31 of the school year unless they have been a part of the Early Head Start Program. If your child turns 5 by August 31st we are not able to enroll them in APPLE ECEAP Preschool, because they are eligible for Kindergarten.

Below is the chart that shows the income eligibility in accordance with the Federal Poverty Level. Calculate current monthly Gross income (before taxes are taken out) or look at your taxes that were done that year, and find them on the chart.

Please call us with any questions.
Thank you!
