The preschool programs operated bythe Office of Early Learning and Title I are entirely state and/or federally grant funded and, as such, involve enrollment criteria. Acceptance into the Norfolk Public Schools prekindergarten program is based, in part, upon the following requirements:
1. Residency: You must provide proof that you and your child are residents of the city of Norfolk.
2. Age: Your child must be age 3 or 4 by September 30th of the school year for which you are applying to enroll.
3. Program-related eligibility criteria: The state and federal funds that support our preschool programs have other criteria that must be taken into consideration before offering acceptance to any student. One factor is the determination of risk. In order for your child to be considered for our preschool programs, you must complete an application and submit the required supporting documents. The application process assists our department in determining risk factors. For most of our four-year-old classes, families must also meet the income requirements as set forth in the Virginia Program Initiative guidelines and in the VPI+ federal expansion grant guidelines. For our three-year-old classes, students must live in a Title I school zone to be accepted (see the Title I section for a list of schools).
