LCSD Selects Sites for Expanded Pre-K Program

Monday, December 18, 2017

The Liverpool Central School District Board of Education recently selected three sites for the Expanded Pre-K program that will begin in January 2018: 

  • County North Children’s Center 
  • Northminster Early Childhood Center 
  • PEACE, Inc. 

The district is in the process of finalizing agreements with each site, which will include determining session times for students. Parents of children selected for the Expanded Pre-K program will be notified of these times when their child has been placed in the program.

In late October the district was awarded a New York State Pre-Kindergarten grant that will allow it to establish an Expanded Pre-K Program for LCSD four-year-olds. Students must attend the program five days a week for two-and-a-half hours per day. 

Instruction will be consistent with the NYS Prekindergarten Foundation for the Common Core, which focuses on a child’s social/emotional, cognitive and physical development. Transportation to and from the program will be the responsibility of parents/ guardians.

To be eligible, a child must:

  • Be four years old on or before December 1, 2017 (born in the year 2013)
  • Reside in the Liverpool Central School District

Those interested in having their child participate in the Expanded Pre-K program can still fill out a notice of interest form (click here to access the online form).

Those submitting a notice between now and March 1 will be added to a waiting list and parents will be notified as spaces become available.

The district hopes to extend the Expanded Pre-K program and increase the number of spaces available during the 2018-2019 school year.
