Meriden School Readiness provides affordable, quality child care slots for 3 and 4 year old children living in Meriden. Programs provide children with a School Readiness experience that can assure they will enter kindergarten ready to learn. 

Fees are based on a sliding scale. Each family’s weekly fee varies. The family fee is based on gross annual income and family size. To be eligible, your child must be a Meriden resident between the ages of 3 and 4. Full day and part day programs are available.
