Tuition Assistance Program Eligibility Application

The Somerville Partnership for Young Children (SPYC), a collaboration between Somerville Public Schools and participating early education programs in the city, will be awarding tuition assistance to a small number of families in Somerville to support the cost of preschool & childcare for 3 and 4 year old children. SPYC believes a safe, engaging, and nurturing early education experience is essential for children to thrive in learning and in life. We want to help families who may need support to access high quality early education opportunities at our partner programs. Our partner programs are The Elizabeth Peabody House Preschool, The Somerville YMCA Preschool, Dandelion Montessori, Open Center for Children, Bigelow Cooperative Daycare Center, Tree House Academy, and Pooh and Friends Childcare. 

Please fill out this application form to tell us more about your family and child. If you meet preliminary eligibility standards, you will receive more information from SPYC Coordinator, Alyssa Corrigan. If you have any questions about the form, please contact Alyssa at or 617-625-6600 ext. 3652. Please do your best to answer all items so we can accurately assess eligibility.

  • Applications are due on January 31, 2020.
  • We will interview eligible families in January 2020 and February 2020.
  • SPYC will notify families of tuition assistance decisions in March 2020.
