NOLA Public Schools facilitates enrollment in free, publicly funded early childhood programs.
Eligibility for these programs are based on factors such as the child's age, household income
, and residency. While some families will be eligible for free programs, others may only be eligible for tuition programs. To confirm eligibility, all required documents must be submitted to be verified.
Students will not be able to receive a school placement and enroll until verification is complete.
Families only applying to tuition-based programs do not need to verify income. Moreover, families currently experiencing temporary housing situations due to financial difficulties or loss of housing (homeless), as well as children under foster care, automatically qualify for these programs. These families will receive direct communication from NOLA-PS throughout the verification stage.
