Community-based organization (CBO) pre-kindergarten programs have no specific application deadline. Families should return applications for CBO programs directly to the providers they choose, and will be notified by CBOs about their placement. Because CBOs may continue to accept applications as long as they have openings, families are encouraged to contact CBOs about seat availability before they apply.
