State Names Pathfinder Kids Kampus
On My Way Pre-K Provider.
Now Taking Applications for Free Preschool Openings
Huntington, IN (June 19, 2017) – Pathfinder Kids Kampus is now an On My Way Pre-K Provider. This program will allow the early education facility to provide free preschool to ten 4 year old children for the 2017-2018 school year. Pathfinder Kids Kampus is now accepting applications for free preschool openings.
Recently, the Indiana Legislature opted to roll all current grantees in the Early Education Matching Grant (EEMG) program into the On My Way Pre-K expansion. Pathfinder Kids Kampus was first named an EEMG grantee in 2015. This change will allow Pathfinder Kids Kampus to maintain the 10 free added enrollment spots for 4-year-olds originally made possible by the EEMG.
On My Way Pre-K is a free program for families who qualify and this high-quality preschool option is an essential component to the success of our community. High quality early childhood education provides opportunities for children to build their language skills, social and emotional skills, math concept awareness, and more, building a foundation for lifelong learning and success.
Loretta Mottram, Pathfinder Kids Kampus Interim Administrator, expressed gratitude to the community that made this possible through their work and donations.
“We appreciate all who contributed matching funds over the years which allowed us to participate in the EEMG program. We are excited to now be an On My Way Pre-K provider and that we can continue to give children the high-quality early learning opportunities they deserve,” stated Mottram. “Early learning curriculums like what we offer in our On My Way Pre-K and our Premier Preschool here at Pathfinder Kids Kampus prepares children for success in school and beyond,” she said.
To qualify for the free On My Way Pre-K preschool, children must be 4 by August 1st, 2017 and must meet income eligibility requirements. Children from Huntington and surrounding counties may apply. Premier Preschool is available for children 3-5 years of age and tuition assistance may be available. Both On My Way Pre-K and Premier Preschool classrooms start August 7th and run through the 2017-2018 school year, Monday through Friday from 9am – 3pm.
Pathfinder Kids Kampus is now taking applications for On My Way Pre-K and Premier Preschool, but spots are limited. For more information, please contact Pathfinder Kids Kampus at 260-356-0123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
