PLSA

The Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) program helps parents individualize the educational plans for their children with certain special needs.

A different kind of scholarship: The Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) is different than other state scholarships in that it allows parents to personalize the education of their children with unique abilities by directing money toward a combination of programs and approved providers. These include schools, therapists, specialists, curriculum, technology – even a college savings account.

School Readiness

Florida’s School Readiness Program offers financial assistance to eligible low-income families for early education and care so they can become financially self-sufficient and their young children can be successful in school in the future. Services vary based on individual needs and range from extended day care to after-school and school-age care in some instances.

Florida’s Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program or VPK is a free educational program that prepares 4-year-olds for kindergarten and beyond. Parents of 4-year-oldswith special needs have an option outside the classroom setting ‒ VPK Specialized Instructional Services (VPK-SIS).
