Pre-Plus Program

pre-plus-logoPre-Plus provides preschool opportunities for Hawaii’s children and helps to ensure they will be safe, healthy, and ready to succeed in school.

Pre-Plus Program

The Pre-Plus Program has expanded access to affordable and high-quality early childhood education for three to four year old children from low-income families across the State.  The program is a public-private partnership to develop and build preschool facilities on public elementary school campuses and contract private preschool providers to operate them.

The Department of Human Services licenses Pre-Plus Programs as childcare centers.  However, in accordance with HRS 302L-1.5(e), under Act 178 of Session Laws Hawaii, 2012, functions of the Pre-Plus Program have been transferred from the DHS to the Executive Office of Early Learning.   For more information about the Pre-Plus Program, visit http://earlylearning.hawaii.gov/.
