The Title I preschool program is a preschool program for which a Local Education Agency (LEA) or school uses Title I funds, in whole or in part, to improve cognitive, health, and social-emotional outcomes for eligible children below the grade at which an LEA provides a free public elementary education. Such a program is designed to prepare eligible children with the prerequisite skills and dispositions for learning that will enable them to benefit from later school experiences.
For additional information, review the official U.S. Department of Education document, Title I Preschool Guidance, Serving Preschool Children Under Title I.
