Star Attendance

Join the Star Attendance program
Get $25 every month

Getting your child to Preschool every day and on time can be complicated.

If you live in Dayton and sign up for the Star Attendance program, you are eligible to receive $25 per month on a Preschool Promise Prepaid Mastercard.

What are the rules?

  • When you sign up, you'll receive a prepaid Mastercard with $25 already loaded. Each month that your child attends 90% of the time, we'll add $25.
  • Attendance rates will be calculated based on the number of days your child is scheduled to be at Preschool.
  • If your child is sick, please don't send him or her to school! Children can't learn when they're not feeling well. And we don't want other children or teachers to get sick.
  • Complications will come up, including illnesses and emergencies. But, to be fair to everyone, the $25 will only be awarded to families who meet the 90% mark, regardless of the reason for their child's absences. Don't worry! You can meet the 90% goal the following month!
  • You may use your Preschool Promise prepaid Mastercard everywhere Debit Mastercard is accepted, including grocery stores, gas stations, retail outlets and at all the typical places where you shop for your family's most important needs.
  • If at the end of the year, your child has been enrolled at a Preschool Promise program for at least 6 months and your child's overall attendance is 93% or better, your family will receive an extra $100 Star Attendance bonus!

How do I enroll?

Fill out the following section. Your prepaid Mastercard, which will be valid for 18 months after the issue date, will be mailed to your home. Follow the instructions to activate your card.
