Once a child has been offered a seat in SPP, the enrollment process involves either a paper enrollment packet or completion of enrollment through the online parent portal. Parent/Guardians will be required to submit documentation to demonstrate the child’s age, the household address and the household income. The following forms may be required depending on your household situation: Housing Affidavit: Used by families experiencing homelessness or families who are unable to provide documentation to demonstrate address. Declaration of No Income: Used by families who have no income received by the parent/guardian of the enrolling child. Opt-Out of Income: Used by families who agree to accept full tuition without verifying specific income for the household. Self-Employment Form: Used by parent/guardians who are self-employed or work “gig” jobs to demonstrate income. Child Support Form: Used by parent/guardians who receive child support for any child in their household, formally or informally.
Once all enrollment documents have been received, enrollments are typically finalized within two weeks. A program intake representative (PIR) will review your enrollment information and documents for completion/accuracy. They will be in touch with you if anything is missing or needs additional information. You will receive an email confirming when your child is fully enrolled and the amount of tuition you may owe. Families without email addresses will receive their letter via mail.
The program begins in the fall at each agency approximately the first week of September. Start dates are determined by individual providers. All providers have additional paperwork required for enrollment at their specific location. This may include emergency contact information, extended day requirements, program orientation, or other program-specific paperwork. Parent/guardians should be in touch with their individual preschool provider before starting, if the provider has not been in touch with the parent/guardian already. Once a child is fully enrolled by SPP, the child is expected to begin the program ASAP, pending provider-specific paperwork.
