Participating school districts offer eligible 4 year olds the opportunity to attend our Pre-K program utilizing The Creative Curriculum, which follows developmentally appropriate practices and is aligned with NYS Learning Standards. Classes focus on meeting kindergarten readiness goals in an environment promoting exploration, social skill development and confidence building through positive learning experiences. Children are placed in both integrated and non-integrated classes with NYS certified teachers. Morning or afternoon sessions are M-F and follow the school calendar.

We offer 2, 3, and 5 days per week programs.
