Options for Learning's center-based programs
Options for Learning's center-based programs are primarily funded by federal, state and local government contracts. As a result, many spaces in our programs allow us to assist lower-income families who are working, attending college or vocational training, or seeking employment.
Families who do not meet the state or federal income guidelines who would like to enroll their children may be able to access spaces in our Full-day Preschool, Surround Care and Empowered Learning programs at reasonable prices. Additionally, our Enrichment Program is a free program located in participating school districts.
Options for Learning welcomes children with disabilities in all our programs, provided the child can be safely and successfully served in the program.
