Preschool Scholarship Availability

Scholarship Availability

The Albany County TANF Preschool Program is available at four different locations in Laramie – Basic Beginnings North, Basic Beginnings South, Linford Elementary School and Slade Elementary School.  To qualify for this program, your child must have reached his or her third birthday by September 15, 2020 for the summer program, and by September 15, 2021 for the 2021-22 school year

According to research, the most significant component of truly effective preschool is the level of knowledge of the teacher in child development and teaching.  Knowledgeable and well trained teachers quite rightfully receive higher salaries.  The result is that the highest quality preschool education is usually also the most costly.  We strive to make our preschool program available to everyone, regardless of ability to afford it.  We offer free preschool to income eligible families through a generous grant from the Wyoming Department of Education. Please check out the TANF preschool enrollment application below to see if you might qualify.  You may then complete and return the application to:
