Universal PreKindergarten

The Universal PreKindergarten (UPK) program is for four year-olds residing in the district.  Classes are held at local preschools and in our elementary schools. All of the UPK teachers are  fully certified and the curriculum is approved by the state.

UPK is a full day, five day per week program for children turning four on or before December 1st of the current school year. Children must meet all health and immunization requirements. Enrollment is limited.  If more applications are received than slots available, a lottery will be conducted.

 A limited number of spots may still be available for eligible students who move into the district mid-year.  Please contact the UPK office for availability.

How do I register my child for UPK?
