Students must be four on or before September 30th and selected by eligibility criteria. Students served by Head Start are not eligible for the program. Applications are available at the Isle of Wight County’s elementary schools or School Board Office. Return the completed application to an elementary school or mail to the designated address on the application. There are limited slots and all parents/guardians are encouraged to complete the application, however there is no guarantee that the child will be accepted in the program. Children who are not accepted in the program, will have their applications kept on file at the Isle of Wight County School Board Office. If a slot becomes available during the school year, applications are reviewed and a child is selected. It is a goal to have all 18 slots filled throughout the school year.
