Chester School District Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program

Chester School District to Offer Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program in September

 

The Chester School District has announced that thanks to funding secured by New York State Senator James Skoufis, it will offer a Universal Pre-Kindergarten program starting on September 1, 2021.  This full-day program will be available for any district resident who will be 4 years old by December 1, 2021.  The program will be staffed by a certified teacher and two teacher aides and will follow the Chester School District calendar. There will be no cost to families for this program, and busing and meals will be provided. 

 

There will be only 18 seats in this program so a lottery will be used to select students if the district receives more than 18 applications.  Applications are available at chesterufsd.org.  Applications may be dropped-off at the Chester Elementary School Main Office between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, emailed to lindsay.iannuzzi@chesterufsd.org or mailed to:
