We offer Universal Prekindergarten (UPK) classes starting every September at five of our program sites. The guidelines of the program were set by the Department of Education. UPK is free of charge to eligible children. To be qualified, your child must be a resident in New York City and must be 4 years of age on or before December 31st in the year of enrollment. Your child must undergo a medical examination and must submit an immunization record 90 days prior to admission.
