What is the cost?
The School Readiness program is partially funded by a School Readiness grant from the State of Connecticut. Parent fees make up the additional funding and are determined by the State of Connecticut Office of Early Childhood sliding scale fee. A copy of the fee scale is available upon request and will be available during enrollment. Tuition is determined once proof of income is submitted. Hardship is available to families that meet the hardship guidelines.
Preschool screenings are held once a year, prior to the beginning of the next school year. Bristol Schools’ preschool teachers and speech pathologist will meet with your children to evaluate skills and determine the best placement for your child. Screenings are done in a classroom setting with up to 16 children in each screening. Parents will meet with preschool staff during the screening to learn more about our program and for a question and answer session. Screenings are made by appointment only. The School Readiness Office will contact families to schedule screenings.
