2023 - 2024 Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program

  • The Glen Cove City School District would like to thank you for your interest in our Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program. The district is required by New York Education Law to have a process in place when there are more students than the district can service.

    As we have done in the past under these circumstances, the district will be holding a lottery on May 19, 2023 to select the students randomly who will have a spot in our Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program for September 2023. The remaining names will be pulled through a lottery and placed on a waitlist. The deadline for registration will be May 18, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. Once the lottery has been conducted, you will be notified whether your child has been accepted or whether your child has been placed on the waitlist.

    Thank you for your interest and cooperation in the Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program
