Welcome to Universal Pre-Kindergarten

 children in class

Hello future Universal Pre-K Families for the entering group for the Fall of 2019-20. We will be posting our UPK Application for 2019-20 class in early February 2019.  If we have more than 67 applications then we go to a lottery and fill in all slots by pulling names and applying to their 1st, 2nd, 3rd choice.  Cut-off for early lottery will be Friday, April 12, 2019, then a wait list will be forming. We will start notifying families by May so they can start to make fall plans.  All 4 sites for our UPK go through the same registration and through Homer Brink School regardless of residency in Maine or Endwell.
If you have any questions about the program please call Molly Goosman at Homer Brink Elementary School at 786-8244 or contact via email at:  mgoosman@me.stier.org  
Maine-Endwell offers a FREE Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) program for families who reside in the district.

New York State is funding UPK programs to “provide four-year-old children with a universal opportunity to access high-quality pre-kindergarten programs that prepare them for future school success by developing strong foundational skills in literacy and numeracy.”

Eligible children must be resident children who will be four on or before December 1st of the year in which they are enrolled in UPK or be eligible to enter kindergarten the following year.
