The Tempe City Council recently approved two additional years of funding for Tempe PRE. Beginning with the 2019/20 school year, we will have a combination of free, reduced rate tuition, and full pay tuition spots available in our program. Applications will open in March 2019 and will list eligibility criteria and rates. You must fill out an application to be considered for the upcoming school year.


High-quality, citywide, free preschools for qualifying children ages 3 and 4

Tempe PRE is a two-year pilot program launched in 2017 by the Tempe City Council to increase access to high-quality preschool at no cost for qualifying families. Families that are eligible for the program must live in Tempe and be living at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.

Tempe PRE is currently full and is accepting applications to be placed on a wait list.
