The New Haven Early Childhood Council established the School Readiness Policies and Procedures, available for download as a pdf file and including eligibility requirements for children, child attendance requirements, space utilization, and more. Many of the policies reiterate those established by the Office of Early Childhood (OEC). Not all OEC General Policies and Program Operation Documents are included, and School Readiness programs are responsible for complying with OEC School Readiness Policies, which can be found here.
Agencies or programs applying for New Haven School Readiness funds must submit the entire grant application to the New Haven School Readiness office. Please note that in order for applications to be considered for funding:
