The Statewide Voluntary Four-Year-Old Preschool Program provides FREE opportunities for Iowa children to attend quality preschool. Children who are age 4 by September 15, 2019, are eligible to attend our free preschool program. Children who are age 5 by September 15, 2019, should register for kindergarten at their resident school and are not eligible for preschool. Our mission is to provide the building blocks for each child’s future education.
