Readiness Programs

early childhood


The City of West Haven and the West Haven Board of Education have received a School Readiness Grant from the State Department of Education. The money from this grant will assist preschool students in West Haven to have a positive preschool experience before they enter kindergarten.

Children three and four years old will be eligible to participate in the preschool programs in various locations in West Haven. The sub grantees below service our children. The School Readiness Program offers full-day, school-day, part-day and extended-day programs. Costs are minimal and parent contributions are based on a sliding scale. 

The West Haven Family Resource Center (based in Savin Rock Community School) provides support services and workshops for School Readiness students (and their families) and other students in that age group.

For further information, please contact the West Haven Board of Education, School Readiness Office at 203-931-6836. Click the names of the readiness sites below to reach the program websites.
