  • I just asked this question earlier I got some good replies Someone told me to look into the Public school district. and try and apply for Head Start they might take her anyway also something Called UPK (universal pre-k). I hope this helps

  • seriously you don't have to answer this on here but is there a dollar amount you can afford? I use to pay 585 a month for daycare. We moved and I refuse to pay a full weeks pay for daycare so I adjusted my hours. I have found a preschool in our area for 60 a week. It's 3 days 2 1/2 hours a day but it's something to get her out. Or try headstart.

  • Check into your local head start program. (they have to provide a certain number of spots for those "over income" levels) You can also call your school district and see what kind of preschool program they provide.

    Church programs

  • I really can't afford anything!!! I know that sounds bad but my dh and i are paycheck to paycheck and we budget every cent!!! I found a place that is 95 dollars a month and i can't even afford that but i really think preschool is very important so i don't know what to do!
