The school year has started, but Memphis-area parents can still register their kids for preschool

October 5, 2020

From the High Ground News article: https://www.highgroundnews.com/features/pandemic_preK_First8.aspx

First 8 Memphis is partnering with Memphis-area pre-K schools to keep registration and enrollment open throughout the 2020-21 school year. 

Children must be 4 years old by August 15 to be eligible. All Tennessee children whose families meet the free or reduced lunch income guidelines qualify for pre-K.

Families can apply for pre-K here.

All of First 8’s pre-K partners provide free education, wraparound services, and family support for those who meet income eligibility requirements. Partner programs will also be providing home learning devices to students in need when health precautions require a virtual classroom.

First 8’s partner programs that offer pre-K instruction include Shelby County Schools, Bartlett City Schools, Millington Municipal Schools, Porter-Leath Pre-K, the Barbara K. Lipman Early Learning and Research Center, Libertas School of Memphis, Cornerstone Prep Denver Campus, Achievement School District, and Perea Preschool.
