The Milford Public Schools Ready to Learn  Preschool Enrollment for the 2023-2024 school year is now open.

The Ready to Learn School Readiness grant funded program is for preschoolers who are not yet eligible for Kindergarten.  Your child must turn three, four or five years old on or before Jan. 1st, 2024.  The Ready to Learn program operates 50 weeks a year for 10 hours per day.  In accordance with the Ready to Learn grant requirements, children must attend the preschool program daily for six hours or more.  At least sixty percent of the children enrolled must be at or below the State median income and have parents who are currently working or seeking employment.

A Ready to Learn preschooler will engage in an inquiry based curriculum that utilizes intentional play and is aligned to the  essential elements of Milford Public Schools Vision of the Learner. Our Ready to Learn program is NAEYC accredited.

In order for your child to be considered for enrollment,  please click

In addition to completing the jotform,  you must submit verification of income by emailing the first page of your 2021 income tax return (be sure to blacken out any confidential information) to Meredith Toth at mtoth@milforded.org.   The subject of your email should state RTL 2023-2024 and your child’s name.

In the Spring of 2023, we will notify you via your personal email address as to whether or not your child has been accepted into the Ready to Learn preschool program for the 2023-2024 school year.

Please note that if you do not need childcare during the summer months,  Milford Public Schools offers a part-time preschool program through Pupil Personnel Services and a school day/school year program at Foran High School.
