Preschool for All Program at Pope John Paul II Catholic School
Preschool for All is the state of Illinois’ initiative to ensure high-quality preschool programs are available to 3 and 4-year old children. The Preschool for All program is a five-hour, five-day a week program provided to eligible* families at no charge.
Pope John Paul II Catholic School offers a Preschool for All Program. The school also offers a voluntary supplemental preschool program, which extends the preschool day to the end of the regular school day. Payment is required for participation in the voluntary supplemental preschool program. The payment is proportionate to the amount of non-Preschool for All time a student spends in the supplemental preschool program.
The hours for the preschool programs are noted below.
• Preschool for All program begins at 7:45 a.m. and ends at 12:45 p.m.
• The supplemental preschool program begins at 12:45 p.m. and ends at 2:45 p.m.
Families who participate in the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP)* will not be charged anything for participation in the Preschool for All program or the supplemental preschool program. The only payment required for CCAP students is the CCAP co-pay.
For more information regarding the preschool programs call 773.523.6161.
*To find out if you are eligible for the Preschool for All program and/or CCAP, please contact the school at 773.523.6161.
