Preschool Limited Term Open Enrollment for ELS Vouchers

Effective from December 6, 2017 through February 6, 2018, all subsidy eligible academic three- and four- year olds may be immediately enrolled in an Early Learning Scholarship (ELS) qualified program with openings through an ELS Voucher, regardless of the family’s enrollment status on SF3C (subject to funding availability). This is a one-time limited term program to facilitate the immediate enrollment of subsidy eligible academic three- and four- year olds, regardless of SF3C status (e.g., walk-ins not on SF3C may be enrolled), and to capitalize on relationships that programs may have directly with subsidy eligible children and families.

All children enrolled through this one-time limited term enrollment process can remain in the program until the child reaches Kindergarten.  Eligibility requirements, as stated in the latest (11.20.17 update) Early Learning Scholarship and Preschool for All Program Operating Guidelines (Fiscal Year 2017-2018), must still be met.

ELS Family Fee Schedule

Families qualified for Early Learning Scholarships must pay the Family Fee based on their income and family size, according to the ELS Family Fee Schedule. Families pay the Family Fee directly to their provider and that amount is deducted from the payment that OECE makes to the provider. If there is more than one child in the family, the Family Fee will be applied to the child with the largest amount of approved child care hours/need.  Click HERE for the Family Fee Schedule
