The Union-Endicott School District receives funding for its Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) through a New York State grant. UPK grants enable school districts to either operate their own UPK programs, or to fund UPK programs through existing preschool organizations in the community. Program eligibility requires students to be four years old on or before December 1.
U-E has chosen to collaborate with existing agencies to offer UPK programs for U-E's children. These sites run independently from each other and have program directors on site.
The three Union-Endicott UPK sites are:
- Endicott First Presbyterian Nursery School on Grant Avenue
- Broome County Head Start on Route 26 and Linnaeus West School
- HCA's UPK program at Linnaeus West School
Each site has its own Pre-K curriculum.
Registration for the 2020-2021 school year will begin in the fall.
We will be accepting phone calls for registration through April 30, 2020. After April 30, 2020, your child may be placed on a wait list. If needed, a lottery will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Friday May 8, 2020 at the district office.
