MONTVILLE, NJ –While preschool is considered critical to children’s success in school, the high cost of tuition can prevent many local families from enrolling their children. Local non-profit Preschool Advantage helps struggling families send their children to preschool by funding a full school-year of quality preschool at a partner preschool.
Preschool Advantage partners with 25 preschools, including schools in Pine Brook and Parsippany, and is accepting applications for tuition assistance for children to attend preschool for the school year beginning in September, 2019. Families demonstrating 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 October 1, 2019 to be considered for funding for the school year beginning in September, 2019. Second-round applications are being accepted through March 29.
While there are federally funded programs to cover the cost of preschool for families living below the poverty line, there are many families who are unable to afford to pay for early education due to the high cost of living in the region. Preschool Advantage is committed to addressing this need, one child at a time, and relies completely on private funding. Preschool Advantage seeks to provide opportunities to prepare children for a lifetime of learning that will create a better world for its students, their families, and the community.
Preschool Advantage has provided families with financial assistance for high quality preschool education since 1995, with almost 1,500 tuitions paid throughout the organization’s history. In 2018, 85 children were assisted by Preschool Advantage. The application form and the list of partner schools can be found on www.preschooladvantage.org, call 973-532-2501, or visit the office at 25 Lindsley Drive, Suite 307, Morristown.
