Universal Pre-Kindergarten and Statewide Full-Day Pre-K are special programs 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 a school district which is providing UPK or Statewide Full Day Pre-K.

This is a preschool program with a qualified teacher and an assistant in every class. Children will attend the program Monday through Friday for 2 1/2 hours each day for UPK and 5 hours each day for Statewide Full-Day Pre-K. Transportation is not provided by Universal Pre-Kindergarten/Statewide Full-Day Pre-K funding.

Child Care Needs Assessment

Please take the survey!  Your input is valuable. The results of the child care needs assessment survey help to provide a picture of the supply of child care. It identifies availability, unmet needs, funding sources, etc. We work in collaboration with the other Child Care Resource & Referral agencies in NYS, using the information we gain to gauge the state of child care and to guide policy making about child care issues locally and at the state level. 

We kindly ask that you take a few minutes to complete and return the survey. Whether or not you do so has no impact whatsoever on the PreK lottery.  The two are independent of each other. Your input, however, will help us to ensure accessible, affordable child care for all families.
