1. Do early childhood educators working in public-school operated pre-kindergarten programs qualify for the Student Loan Repayment Assistance Program?

According to Vermont Act 45, eligible Early Childhood Educators must be employed in a privately licensed and operated, CDD regulated center-based program or family child care home. If the licensee of a program is a public school or supervisory union, then that program would not qualify as privately operated. Head Start Programs are privately operated.
