Pre-Kindergarten/UPK Program Information & Registration

Our Pre-K/UPK program provides three and four year old children with opportunities for learning through exploration, play and discovery that build on children’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth.

SCOPE Pre-Kindergarten – Parent/Guardian is responsible for tuition.

SCOPE UPK (Universal Pre-Kindergarten) – New York State grant pays for students that turn 4 years old on or before December 1, to attend program.  Student selection is through a lottery process done by the school district.  Students must be a district resident.
