News Release from Office of the Governor, April 19, 2016

HONOLULU – The Executive Office on Early Learning is accepting applications for free pre-kindergarten classes for the 2016-17 school year.

The free classes are available to eligible children at 19 public elementary schools on O‘ahu, Kaua‘i, Maui, Moloka‘i, Lāna‘i and Hawai‘i Island, where need is greatest. The state-funded program serves children who qualify, based on federal poverty guidelines and age requirements.

“Many keiki in Hawai‘i whose families can’t afford preschool may lag behind throughout their school years. All children should enter school ready and able to succeed,” said Lauren Moriguchi, director of the Executive Office on Early Learning.

Applications will be accepted throughout the year, though priority will be given to families who apply by April 29th.

To qualify, children must be 4 years old on or before July 31, 2016. Those interested in applying can download an application and obtain eligibility requirements at: or call 586-3811.
