How it Works:
The Hattiesburg Early Learning Collaborative Grant allows us to provide a community-wide effort to make Pre-K available for everyone.
Hattiesburg Public School District (HPSD), Pearl River Valley Opportunity Head Start (PRVO) and five childcare centers are working together to provide all 4-year-olds an opportunity to attend Pre-K. Registration for HPSD and PRVO will be held at one location.
Children must be 4 years old on or before September 1st.
