Winters families may qualify for their child to attend the Winter State Preschool Center after the California Department of Education revised the state median income for 2018-19 this July. Beatrice Jordan the Preschool Director for the Winters State Preschool Center said the changes are in effect as of July 1. “A memo came from the state stating that as of July 1 the income guidelines had increased,” Jordan said. “If you didn’t qualify before July 1 families can come back to get reassessed.” The Winters State Preschool program uses the size of family and their income as the main two factors to determine qualification. Jordan said once a family qualifies for the program they are in for the entire year. “We do still have openings,” Jordan said. Families interested in applying or reapplying need to go to the office to fill out a pre-application to find out if they qualify. blank Besides the increase in income guidelines, the Winters State Preschool program is in the process of getting a new website and over the summer moved across the former Wolfskill and John Clayton campus into Room 1 of the main building. They campus itself bears a new sign and name of the Winters Joint Unified School District Early Childhood Education Center. Head Start joins the new WJUSD ECE Center in Room 3 this fall.
