Preschool and Out of School Time Learning
The Office of Preschool and Out-of-School Time Learning (P&OSTL) provides information, consultation, and resources to families, educators, and communities concerned with the progress and development of children, youth and their families so that they will be prepared to succeed in school and in life. P&OSTL manages federal and state grant programs and consults with preschool/prekindergarten programs, preschool special education programs and services, transition into K-3 primary grades, and out-of-school time programs (i.e., before- and after-school, summers, vacations, and weekends) for K-12 students. Major programs include: Great Start Readiness Program, Early Childhood Special Education (IDEA, Part B, Section 619), and 21st Century Community Learning Centers.
