We are priviledged to offer these scholarships due to the donations and support by the Rand Corporation Carmeuse and the Lampert Family Fund of the Otsego Community Foundation

We encourage anyone to enroll, however, as always, no scholarship is guaranteed. Furthermore, every family should have a "back up plan" in the event that scholarship funding is not awarded. Please read in detail this letter regarding scholarship applications.

Because the Great Start Collaborative understands the importance of a quality early education, we want to help ensure as many children as possible have an equal opportunity to attend preschool! With the assistance of community grants, we are able to offer families such as yours, financial assistance to send your child to preschool!


Scholarships are made possible with the generous donations from a wide variety of community organizations and private donors.

       · Income guidelines
