The Preschool Early Learning Program (Preschool ELP) helps prepare young children for school. Residents living in the Best Start Demonstration community of Lambton County and Chatham Kent County who are 31 months to 4 years of age and are not yet eligible to enter junior kindergarten. Participation in PELP is free, space permitting.
In Lambton County each PELP session is 2.5 hours in length. Eligible children are entitled to up to 16 sessions per month.
In Kent County each PELP session is 2.5 hours in length. Eligible children are entitled to up to 20 sessions per month.
