It's time to apply for free preschool and childcare for this fall! Programs in our schools and in our area serve qualifying children who will still be younger than 5 years old by September 30. Apply for free early childhood education through our local Go2Growwebsite.
For children who will be 3 or 4 years old by September 30, 2024: Go2Grow.com is where you can apply for free preschool at Charlottesville City Schools. Our preschool runs five days a week and helps children become kindergarten-ready through play and learning activities. With this one application, you can also apply for MACAA Head Start or other preschool programs.
For children as young as infants: Go2Grow.com is also where you can apply for free early childhood education and child care.
Go2Grow programs are free for families that meet the eligibility requirements.
