The City of Chicago’s Early Learning Program application portal opens for the 2017-2018 school year. Families with preschool-aged children can submit a single application for any preschool program funded by the City of Chicago by applying online. Different programs serve children of different ages and are funded in a variety of ways. Many sites have more than one type of program supported by a combination of local, state, and federal funding sources with different eligibility requirements. For more information call (312) 229-1690.
