Early Learner Scholarships
Our United Way envisions a community where all children arrive at school prepared to succeed and grow up healthy. Our goal is to close the opportunity gap by promoting strategies to provide all children with the most appropriate and effective early services, supports and high-quality early child care and education required to achieve the desired outcomes.
Our Early Learner Scholarships are for child care and preschool for children from low-income working families. These scholarships give children access to quality, stable early education environments to prepare them for success in school and life.
For more information, contact Samantha Whalen, 434.972.1708.
We strive to return calls and emails concerning the Early Learners Scholarship Program within 24 hours. However, in the event that we are unable to return your call or email within that timeframe please know that we have designated Thursdays to answer and reply to any calls or emails regarding the ELS Program.
