The Ministry of Education is accepting applications for the Early Childhood Assistance Programme for the next school year.
The programme, which assists parents/guardians with the payment of fees at early childhood centres, is open to Caymanian children who turn 3 years old before 1 Sept. 2020, and who meet means-testing requirements.
Application forms must be accompanied by a copy of the child’s birth certificate, proof of the child’s nationality, a copy of the parents’ valid photo identification, and proof of income, officials said.
Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their applications before 1 Sept.
