Financial Assistance

Community Education strives to make classes and activities accessible to all participants by offering scholarships and fee assistance to those who qualify.

How to apply:

  • Early Learning's ECFE and School Readiness Financial Assistance 
    Class fees are determined on a sliding fee scale based on family income. No one is turned away for inability to pay. If you need additional assistance, please call 651-425-2701. 

  • Early Learning's Preschool Financial Assistance
    Financial assistance may be available for families that meet certain state eligibility requirements. Financial assistance can be applied for online when you are registering for preschool. Families may be required to provide proof of income. Those qualifying for assistance will also be required to fill out a MN Department of Education Scholarship application. Limited district scholarships are available.

  • Youth: Families who qualify for free or reduced-price meals may request fee assistance to reduce the cost of Community Education activities and classes. If you are using financial assistance, your application and registration form must be mailed, faxed, or dropped off two weeks prior to the deadline date. Youth financial assistance application
