Preschool: Families may apply for preschool if their child turns 4 on or before August 1 and identified to have a developmental delay, disability, or meets the federal income eligibility guidelines he/she can attend preschool if their child is 3 years old and identified to have a developmental delay or disability he/she can attend preschool.
