• Access to Preschool

    An important goal of McKinney-Vento is to afford homeless preschoolers the same opportunity to enroll, attend and succeed in preschool as non-homeless preschoolers, thereby minimizing their educational disruption due to homelessness.

    School District Homeless Education Liaisons and early care and education providers, including child development and preschool program personnel, child care resource and referral agencies (CCRRs), and other service providers, must coordinate and collaborate to review and undertake a revision of practices, or policies that inadvertently act as barriers to the enrollment of homeless children in child care and early education programs.
