    The East Ramapo Central School District is proud and delighted to welcome you and your four-year-old to our Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program (UPK). We are pleased to collaborate with more than 50 pre-schools and child centers to help your four-year-old - develop socially, emotionally, physically, linguistically, culturally, and intellectually.

    The Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) is a special early childhood program established by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and contracted School Districts (East Ramapo) to provide an early learning experience for children who will be four years old by December 1, 2022.

    The UPK program is conducted with a qualified teacher and an assistant in every class. The children attend five (5) days a week for 180 school days per school year. AT NO COST TO YOU! There are still openings for Full-Day (5-hour) pre-Kindergarten programs.
