As part of the Universal Pre-Kindergarten program, New York State (pending approval), will provide funding for the placement of 24 four-year-old children into district-selected participating agencies/preschool programs. Children must be born in the year 2013 and reside in the Northport-East Northport School District.

If selected, parents must agree to send their child 5 days per week for a 2 ½ hour per day program, verify their residence, and have their child undergo hearing, vision and dental exams.  A full immunization record must be submitted.  There is no cost to the family, however, transportation is not provided.
