From The Alliance for Children Website
The North Carolina Pre-Kindergarten Program is a free, high quality program designed to enhance school readiness for eligible four-year-old children. The program is built on the National Education Goals Panel’s premise that to be successful academically in school, children need to be prepared in all five of the developmental domains that are critical to children’s overall well-being and success in reading and math as they enter school. NC licensed teachers provide developmentally appropriate play-based instruction to help children strengthen and learn a variety of skills.
Numerous studies have shown that students who participate in a high quality pre-kindergarten program are more likely to succeed in grades K-12 and throughout their lives. Union County NC Pre-K teachers use Conscious Discipline® and Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning to help children develop their social, emotional and self-regulation skills. There are many free tools for parents on these websites: www.ConsciousDiscipline.com and csefel.vanderbilt.edu. These tools can help you learn to support your young children’s behavior at home as well.
Eligible children must be four years old by August 31st of the school year for which they apply.
The child and family must reside in Union County. Family income must be 75% of the state median income shown on this table:
If a family income is over 75% of the state median income, a child may be eligible if one of these factors applies: the child has limited English proficiency, identified disability, chronic health condition, or identified developmental or educational need. Children with a parent who is active duty military are eligible regardless of income (military documentation is required with application). For any exceptions, copies of documentation must be provided with the child’s application.
