WELCOME TO UPK - UNIVERSAL PRE-KINDERGARTEN

UNIVERSAL PRE-KINDERGARTEN

Dear UPK Parents,

Maine-Endwell has made it a priority to provide quality education to our youngest Spartans.  The district has been awarded additional federal funding allowing us to move to full-day UPK in several of our locations in the community.  In addition, the district will continue to provide half-day UPK programming for the upcoming school year as well.  All children will need to be 4 years old on or before December 1, 2022, to enter the UPK Program.  The district does not provide transportation to any of the UPK locations, as parents/guardians are required to make all transportation arrangements.

For the 2022-2023 school year, the district will be providing UPK at the following locations:

  • Future Faces Child Care, Endwell, NY – 20 full day slots. Tentatively 9am-2:45pm

  • Northminster Presbyterian Church, Endwell, NY - 16 full day slots. Tentatively 8:45am-2:45pm

  • Maine Memorial Elementary School, Maine, NY – 45 full day slots. Tentatively 9am-2:45pm

  • Endwell Nursery School, Endwell, NY – 18 am ½ day slots. Tentatively 9am-11:30am and 18 pm ½ day slots. Tentatively 12:15pm-2:45pm

Online registration for the 2022-2023 school year will open next week.  Each guardian of a future UPK student will need the following to register their student:

  • 2 proofs of residency

  • Child’s birth certificate

  • Health forms

  • Proof of Immunizations

  • Any custody paperwork if applicable. 

The district is required to use a lottery system for the selection and assignment of UPK slots.  The online registration will enter your child into the Maine-Endwell UPK lottery.  If the district reaches capacity for UPK slots available, a waitlist will be created. During the registration process you will be asked to rank your preferred UPK Locations. You will need to rank each placement using 1-5 with 1 being your first choice.  You may only use each ranking once.

  • The online registration portal will open on February 9, 2022.

 

  • The UPK registration will close on March 10, 2022.

 

  • Notifications for the UPK 2022-2023 placements will go out at the end of March.

The registration portal works best from a non-cellular device.  If you are having trouble with the registration process or need any assistance, please call Dana Calandra at 607-862-3263, ext. 2320 or email at dcalandra@me.stier.org
