A mother and her child are ready to start school, but they’re worried about their school’s ability to deliver a good education.
They’ve asked the district for help and are ready for the first day.
They’ve got a great plan and the resources to get their children to preschool or daycare.
But it might take some time.
For some children, kindergarten may be a long way off.
In most states, kids who reach kindergarten by age 6 can qualify for free or reduced-price preschool or preschool services.
But the federal government doesn’t offer any federal funding for the programs.
Some states, including Washington, have begun making it easier to start early childhood education programs.
Here’s what you need to know.
Why is it so hard to start prekindergarten?
Many preschool programs start with the assumption that children can learn well on their own.
The idea is that parents will learn the skills and know-how that are critical to learning.
But as preschoolers age, their brains age and their abilities improve.
A study published in the journal Pediatrics in 2017 found that those who started kindergarten by six months were about twice as likely to be in trouble at school as those who had started by the end of kindergarten.
The researchers then compared those who began preschool by six or eight months to those who did not.
The results showed that the children who started early tended to have worse academic achievement and were more likely to drop out or be late to school.
What’s a prekiddie?
A prekidding child is a child who’s at least 6 years old, but who has a parent who has not yet enrolled in a preschool program.
Prekiddies can be small, typically one to two kids, or larger families, which include grandparents, aunts, uncles, and aunts and uncles-in-law.
They’re usually young, and they often have special needs.
For example, prekidden children have hearing problems and are more likely than others to have limited vocabulary and limited social interaction.
If your child starts preschool early, you can support them by making sure they have enough supplies, including:•Food for the child to eat•A safe place to sleep•A play area with toys or activities for the children•The right tools for the preschoolers•Time to practice with the teacher•And, if you want, a library card for the prekidder’s friends.
How to start a preK preschool or childcare programThere are two types of preK programs: preschool and early childhood.
PreK preschool is the state or local program that’s started by a child, and it’s typically funded by the federal Head Start program.
Early childhood programs can start in the community.
Here are some tips for getting started with preK.•Before you start preschool, talk with your child’s teacher.
This is crucial to helping them understand the programs and their options.•Your child can get in touch with you by calling your local prek preschool.•The prekids can use a library or phone.
It’s important that they are able to call the pre kiddie’s teacher or counselor so they have the information they need to understand the preschool.

What if my child is sick?
Your child may be eligible for some preK benefits.
These include health insurance, subsidized lunch, and childcare subsidies.
You’ll need to determine whether your child is eligible for a pre K benefits program.
If you’re eligible, contact your childs health care provider to get details on what benefits he or she can receive.
If not, the child’s pre K eligibility is at the discretion of the local pre K coordinator.
If the child is ineligible, your child will be on a waiting list.
Your childs pre K childcare provider will contact you about how to get the child off the waiting list if the child becomes eligible for an eligible pre K benefit.
