Pre-K/Universal Pre-K (UPK) for 2023-24

The North Colonie Central School District is again offering Universal Pre-K (UPK) as part of funding from the New York state adopted budget.

We have held our lottery for the 2023-24 school year. Families are welcome to submit a UPK application to be placed on our wait list for any future openings. Please note that lunch is not provided at our UPK programs.

UPK is a free program that will be open to North Colonie families with children who will be four years old by December 1, 2023. Please note that students who are age-eligible to enter traditional Kindergarten (5 years old by December 1, 2023), are not eligible for UPK.

Our Current UPK Partnership

The district currently partners with Catholic Central (formerly St. Ambrose) of the Albany Diocese and the Colonie Youth Center.

UPK Registration Forms

Exploring Other Opportunities

In the coming weeks, North Colonie CSD will issue a Request For Proposal (RFP) in an effort to establish more partnerships with eligible UPK providers. Our hope is that we will be able to offer more slots to North Colonie families. We will keep you apprised of any information when it becomes available.
