Big Jump In Preschool Slots For Michigan Children

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - As many as 16,000 more 4-year-olds will be able to attend preschool in Michigan this fall, thanks to a big boost in the state's early education budget.

Michigan's $109 million early education budget paid for about 32,000 children last school year. This year's $174 million budget covers about 48,000 children.

The state provides free preschool for children from moderate- and low-income families.

The cutoff is about $39,000 for a parent with one child and about $59,000 for a family of four, with positions going first to the poorest children.
