Applications for NHP-GCP universal pre-K due in March

Pending the approval of the New York State budget, New Hyde Park-Garden City Park Union Free School District will provide a half-day universal pre-Kindergarten at Manor Oaks School for the 2018-2019 school year in cooperation with SCOPE Education Services.

As the program is entirely funded through a grant from New York Sate, there are no additional costs to local taxpayers.

The program is located at Manor Oaks School, and is staffed by a New York State certified teacher and assistant.

It runs Monday through Friday, and follows the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park 2018-2019 school calendar.

There are two morning sessions from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., and two afternoon sessions from noon to 2:30 p.m.

Time preferences will be considered, but are not guaranteed, and are based upon lottery results.

Parents must provide transportation.

Applicants must be a resident of New Hyde Park-Garden City Park, not eligible for Kindergarten until September 2019 and four-years-old – born on or before Dec. 1, 2014.

There are 72 openings. Students will be selected at a public lottery to be held on Wed. March 28 at 9:00 a.m. in the board room at Manor Oaks School.

Successful applicants will then be contacted to complete the registration process.

Applications and additional information can be found at or by contacting the Office of Curriculum and Technology at (516) 434-2323.

Applications are due back no later than Wed. March 14.
