  • You could try headstart or most public preschools are free now to 4 year old.

  • I would call the local elementary or the school board. A number of school districts have a preschool program for low income. It is funded by the federal government.

  • Contact your school board, and your county human services, that's where I found all my info.

  • Headstart. They enroll your child and start making home visits. And the sooner they can find or create a learning disability they will. They get more funding from the government that way. Then your child is exposed to more children with learning disabilities and behavior disorders. Then your child can see what those children do and try those behaviors out too. Their staff is over worked and under paid. Talk to your county about child care assistance and get enrolled in a preschool program that accepts payment from the county. Much better situation for your child and you don't have to have the home visits from headstart. The children will be around more kids without disabilities and have a better chance at a normal start in kindergarten. I know, I've worked with headstart in the professional sense. It isn't what they promote themselves as.

  • ditto what everyone else said...also many areas have magnet schools...they are lottery based. So your child may not get it so have a back up but if they do it is totally FREE!! GL
