Scholarships will be available to families who otherwise would not be able to afford high quality preschool for their child. There are requirements for receiving scholarships that will ensure family participation. Programs that receive scholarships must also be approved and meet certain guidelines.  

The program is loosely modeled after the A+ program for high school students. 

The Every Child Promise Strategic Plan, introduced to the community on Jan. 21, 2014, includes four Phase 1 priorities, one of which is to provide scholarship asssitance to all families with children 0-5 years within Springfield Public Schools' boundaries. This Cause Momentum is designed to seek community support to partially fund the full goal of $100,000 for 60+ scholarships.
