Cecil J. Picard LA4 Early Childhood Program

As Louisiana’s largest preschool program, the Cecil J. Picard LA4 Early Childhood Program provides economically disadvantaged children with early childhood education during a six-hour-a-day program and before- and after-school enrichment. 

Four-year-olds who qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch are eligible to attend the program.

The 8(g) Student Enhancement Block Grant Program

The 8(g) Student Enhancement Block Grant Program preschool program was established in 1993 to serve students who are at-risk of not being prepared for Kindergarten.  Priority is given to students from economically disadvantaged families. 

The LA4 program is Louisiana’s main preschool program. However, school districts can use other funding sources, such as Title 1 funds or other district resources to fund PreK classes.
