The application process for the 2014-15 Tuckahoe Union Free School District’s Universal Pre-Kindergarten program is now underway. The Universal Pre-Kindergarten is a special program which was established by the State Education Department and the Tuckahoe Union Free School District to provide an early learning experience for the children of eligible families.
This preschool program, conducted with a qualified teacher and assistants in class, runs five (5) half days for 2 1⁄2 hours each day (12:15p.m. to 2:45p.m.) for 180 days per school year, at no cost to the student’s family. Eligible families are defined as those who live in the Tuckahoe School District and have children who will be four years old by December 1, 2014. The program is now accepting applications in preparation for the 2014-2015 school year which will begin on Monday, September 8, 2014.
Applications, available at www.tuckahoeschools.org or by contacting 914-337-6600 x1224, must be submitted by January 31, 2014.
We anticipate that the funding awarded for this program will limit our enrollment. A lottery will be conducted February 6, 2014, for the program starting in September 2014.
NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS OPEN TO FOUR YEAR OLDS ONLY. Students who are unable to attend pre-kindergarten 5 days a week, 2 1⁄2 hours per day, for the entire school year may be ineligible.
