Pre-kindergarten (Pre-K) is a special program established by the New York State Education Department and the local school districts to provide a preschool experience for the children of eligible families. The program starts each year in September and we accept applications for children who will be four years old by December 1st of the current school year and live in the school district in which they are applying.

Pre-K is a preschool program with a qualified teacher and an assistant in every class. Children will attend the program Monday through Friday for 2½ hours each day. The participating districts are Clarkstown, East Ramapo*, Nanuet, Nyack, Pearl River, Suffern Central, South Orangetown and North Rockland.

If you would like to participate in this New York State Education Department funded program one of the requirements is that you have a NYS early childhood certified teacher on-site. To request an application, please call 845-425-0009 ext. 0
