On My Way Pre-K is Indiana’s free, funded Pre-K program available to eligible 4-year-olds in select counties, including Delaware County. BY5 is the lead agency for the program in Delaware County, but partners closely with Huffer CCR&R and other local partners to make sure the program is a success throughout our community.
1. The program now has rolling admission.
Previously, families could only enroll their child in pre-school at set times throughout the year. Now, however, the program is allowing children to enroll as long as there are spots available—and there are still plenty of spots available in Delaware County.
2. Delaware County houses over 20 providers.
The list of On My Way Pre-K providers keeps growing and includes sites at diverse locations, like childcare centers, and home daycares, and four elementary schools in Muncie (South View, Grissom, East Washington Academy, and Muncie Area Career Center). This wide variety of sites allows families to choose the Pre-K program that’s right for their needs and desires.
3. Delaware County's new On My Way coordinator is here to hep families.
Delaware County’s On My Way Pre-K Coordinator, Haylie Reese, has worked exclusively since last fall to help families and providers access On My Way Pre-K. Families can call or text Haylie.
