MORRISTOWN, NJ – Morristown nonprofit Preschool Advantage is accepting applications for tuition assistance for children to attend its partner preschools for the school year beginning in September. Families demonstrating a commitment to education and financial need can apply for funding for a half day of preschool.

Children must be 3 or 4 years old by Oct. 1 to be considered for funding for the school year beginning in September. Applications received by Feb. 28 will be given priority in funding decisions.

Preschool Advantage partners with 24 preschools in Morris and Somerset counties to provide a quality preschool education for families who could otherwise not afford it. Every year, there are many local families who cannot afford tuition for preschool because of financial circumstances.

Preschool Advantage has carefully selected partner preschools in Madison, Morristown, Morris Plains,, Bernardsville, Bridgewater, Chester, Denville, Dover, Jefferson, Mendham, Mountain Lakes, Mount Olive, Parsippany and Succasunna.

Preschool Advantage seeks to provide opportunities for a lifetime of learning that will create a better world for its students, their families and the community.

There are thousands of working families in New Jersey who cannot afford to provide their children with an early education. While there are federally funded programs to cover the cost of preschool for families living below the poverty line, working families making over that level have limited options. 

The high cost of living in Morris and Somerset counties leaves many families unable to afford a quality early education for their children. Preschool Advantage is committed to addressing this need, one child at a time, and relies completely on private funding.

Preschool Advantage has provided families with financial assistance for high quality preschool education since 1995, with more than 1,300 tuitions paid throughout the organization's history. In 2017, 75 children were assisted by Preschool Advantage.

The application form and the list of partner schools can be found on preschooladvantage.org, or call (973) 532-2501 to request a copy to be mailed.
