Pre-Kindergarten District Vacancy Flyers

Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) programs provide a nurturing environment where children's natural curiosity is used as a springboard to learn skills that are necessary for success in school. 

All UPK programs are free of charge. Programs can be half-day or full-day; half-day programs may take place in the morning or afternoon. UPK programs are available at select NYC Department of Education (DOE) public schools and at many community-based organizations (CBOs). CBOs are independent groups that contract with the Department of Education to provide free pre-kindergarten programs and other services to families. Just like public school pre-k programs, CBOs are required by the City to provide high-quality instruction based on New York State's pre-kindergarten standards (the NYS Pre-Kindergarten Foundation for the Common Core). 

Eligibility: Children born in 2009 who reside in New York City are eligible to participate in UPK programs that are offered by the NYC Department of Education in the 2013-14 school year.
