This program gives children the skills and knowledge they need to be ready for kindergarten. Spaces are still available for the 2016-2017 program. Children must be 4 years old and families must be income-eligible to apply. Prekindergarten students attend daily classes Monday through Friday, in the morning or afternoon. Enroll your child today!
