    The Universal Pre-kindergarten Program is a grant-funded program which is renewed annually by the NYS Governor. The program operates 2-1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week for the length of the school year.  

    Parents are responsible for transportation to and from the pre-kindergarten program. Children must be four years old on or before Dec. 1st of the year they will be starting school in order to be eligible for the program.

    The primary purpose of our program is to provide four-year-old children with the opportunity to access high-quality prekindergarten programs that prepare them for future school success by developing strong foundational skills in early literacy and mathematics. The goal of our program is to encourage and support child-initiated, child-directed and teacher-supported activities based on a curriculum to ensure strong instructional content aligned with the NYS Learning Standards.

    For more information regarding this program, please contact Kathy Kirchmyer at 677-3151 or kkirchmyer@wscschools.org for more information.

    Please note the UPK office can be accessed through the doors on the left-hand side of the district office building.
