If you are a parent  of a child with special needs and plan to attend a conference or workshop on topics associated with helping your child, you may be eligible for a grant.   Each year, funds are set aside to help families be able to attend conferences without having to worry about the cost. Grants are not based on financial need.  Please contact Kim Bolan to find out how to apply for a grant today.

If you are a childcare provider located in the Millard Public Schools district, grant opportunities may be available to you when attending trainings/conferences provided by the Nebraska Early Learning Network. Required trainings such as CPR, First Aid,Safe Sleep, etc do not qualify. Please contact Kim Bolan to see if you are eligible to receive a grant to help with funding.


Millard Public Schools, along with community partners vested in early childhood education, meet together to work collaboratively for ways to best serve all young children and families in the district and maximize all available resources for the community's use.  Meetings are always open for anyone to attend.  For more information on the Early Childhood Advisory Committee, or if you are interested in joining the committee, please contact Cheris Kite at or 402-715-1431.
