  • Will be 4 years old by December 1, 2017

The New York State Education Department and the Federal Government as the grant funding entities have established an income standard for families to be eligible for the Pre-K program.

The school day for ALL Pre-Kindergarten students is 8:30 AM until 2:30 PM and will run concurrent with the school district calendar.  Enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year has begun.  APPLICATIONS ARE AVAILABLE ON THIS WEB PAGE.  They can also be obtained in person at 17 Spring Street.
