The New Hampshire Department of Education has partnered with Waterford Upstart to offer a free, at-home early learning program to children entering kindergarten in the fall. Students who qualify with the following birth dates can participate in the FREE program. Students’ birth dates must fall between August 1, 2018 and September 30, 2019. Students who complete the program will enhance their readiness for kindergarten this fall.

Waterford Upstart is an at-home, PreK learning program that provides positive, parent-child interactions while delivering personalized, online instruction. During the summer program, children will engage with the curriculum for 20 minutes a day, five days a week. “Preschool is the ideal platform for children to build a strong academic foundation and enhance language and literacy – skills that are critical for school readiness.

Families in need may also receive support in accessing a laptop and internet access.
