Universal Pre-Kindergarten 2022-2023

The Universal Pre-Kindergarten program is funded by a New York State Grant. We anticipate full-day and half-day UPK seats, pending New York State approval. This form must be submitted on-line by no later than 12:00pm on April 8, 2022. A lottery system will be used to select the students. Those who are selected will be notified on or after May 6, 2022.   

*This program is pending receipt of the state grant for the 2022--2023 school year. 

Registration/lottery form is available in the below link. You ONLY have to fill out the UPK lottery form. No other paperwork is necessary at this time.


Questions commonly asked:

Does my child qualify for the universal pre-k program?

Your child must be 4 years old (born in 2018) and reside in the Northport-East Northport School District to qualify. 

Is there anything I can do to guarantee my child is chosen?

No. The lottery is entirely random and demographics are not a factor in the selection of students. 

What happens if my child is selected?

If your child is selected, parents must agree to send their child 5 days per week. There is no cost to the family, however transportation is not provided. Parents will have the opportunity to select a UPK provider from a list of participating schools prior to registration in June 2022.
