Universal Pre-kindergarten Program
2024-2025 School Year
The 2024-2025 Universal Pre-Kindergarten program is funded by a New
York State Grant, not district funds.
The Harborfields Central School District is pleased to offer a Universal
Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) program for the 2024-2025 school year, pending New
York State budget approval and grant funds awarded to the district. All
children who will be 4 years of age on or before December 1, 2024, are
eligible to participate in the 2024-2025 UPK lottery if the child is a resident
of the district.
For the 2024-2025 schoolyear, the district will offer a full-day program. The
classes will be held Monday through Friday, and the program will follow the
school district’s school calendar. There is NO cost to participate in this
program, but families are responsible for providing transportation for their
child. The curriculum follows NYS Prekindergarten Standards and aligns
with the Harborfields CSD curriculum.
Selection for the UPK program is lottery-based and requires the completion
of an application. If you would like to enter your child in the UPK lottery,
please complete the online application no later than 3:00 p.m. on Friday,
March 8, 2024. If your child is selected through the lottery, you will receive a
notification in the mail with information on how to register.
If you have any questions regarding the UPK program, please contact Dr.
Danielle DeLorenzo, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and
Instruction, at (631)754-5320 ext. 6325.
