Supports for Preschool Students in Foster Care
Access to Preschool Programs
Preschool programs support early learning for students prior to kindergarten entry. If a district offers preschool, the district must meet the Title I requirements for children in foster care who were enrolled in a public preschool program at the time of placement in a foster home. Public preschool includes Head Start and Early Head Start, Help Me Grow, programs funded through the Early Childhood Education Grant, and any other preschool program administered by a public school district. Children may attend preschool at a specific location or participate in a home-based program.
For more information about preschool program requirements in Ohio access Ohio Administrative Code. Visit Funding Services for Students in Foster Care for information on funding supports for Ohio’s early learners in foster care.
