The Universal Pre-Kindergarden (UPK) Extension program was created because NYS recognized the need for preschool but did not take into account that half day programs do not meet the care needs of many working families.
This program runs 41 weeks, beginning the first day of public school and lasting until the last day of public school. The children are picked up at 11:15 after the morning UPK session and escorted to our room to eat a lunch (brought from home) and participate in a full afternoon of activities. The program is open until 5:30 p.m.
The UPK Extension Program includes a wide range of activities. The activities include: daily outdoor games, use of the playground, indoor play, use of the gym, group activities, circle time and crafts.
The UPK Extension Program is an annual (41 week) program that costs $125 per child per week. You must commit to full weeks. The program can have up to 15 children, however we must have at least 12 children signed up annually before we can run it.
