Universal Pre Kindergarten (UPK)

Welcome to UPK at Maine-Endwell!

Dear UPK Parents,

Maine-Endwell has made it a priority to provide quality education to our youngest Spartans. The district received funding that allowed full day UPK in several locations in our district. We are hopeful that the same level, or an increase of funding will be awarded for the 2023-24 school year. To participate in the UPK program, the child must turn 4 years old on or before December 1, 2023.

Selection for the UPK program is done by the lottery system and although you can rank your preferences of location and time, there is no guarantee that your child will be selected or assigned to your preferred location/time slot.  In addition, the district does not provide transportation to any of the UPK locations, so transportation to and from the program is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.

Our online registration portal will open in early spring (date TBD) and will remain open for approximately one month.  Please continue to check the website at the beginning 2023 for updates. Notifications for UPK placement will be sent around mid-April.

In planning ahead for registration,  you will need the following:

  1. Two (2) proofs of residency

  2. Your child’s birth certificate

  3. Health forms

  4. Proof of immunizations

  5. Any custody paperwork (if applicable).

 If you have questions about our UPK program, or need assistance, please contact Dana Calandra at 607-862-3263 x 452 or via email using the link in the Contact Us section.
