Head Start Pre-Kindergarten / Free for Port Chester Children

Enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year is now OPEN!

In partnership with Westchester Community Opportunity Program, the Port Chester Schools will offer up to 225 slots to a free, full day, Pre-Kindergarten program for children who:

  • Will be 4 years old by Dec. 1, 2018
  • Are residents of Port Chester
  • Meet the established Federal and State income guidelines

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.

In Pre-K, the children will build necessary social, emotional and academic skills, preparing them for Kindergarten through a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Children with special needs are included. Each site offers classroom configuration options for working parents.
