Clarkston Start

As educators, we know that early childhood education is essential for developing young minds, and that a strong preschool program can positively impact a child’s entire future. Clarkston Community Schools is proud to offer free preschool for three-year-olds (similar to the Great Start Readiness program we offer for four-year-olds) to qualifying Clarkston residents as part of our district's strategic plan. This innovative educational program is called “Clarkston Start.”

Does my family qualify?

1. Do you live in the Clarkston school district?
2. Will your child be three (3) by December 1, 2020?
3. Does your family meet the Income Guidelines 

Please email to apply. You will need to bring two (2) proofs of residency and proof of income to the intake appointment.
