Programs for 4-Year-Olds
Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) – UPK is a program funded by the New York State, administered by NYS Department of Education and is available without cost to all 4-year-old children living in New York City. Many organizations, like RNH, offer this program in a variety of options.
Here is how we offer UPK to our families. UPK is a free, 6 hour and 20 minute, five day a week, pre-kindergarten program. RNH has four UPK classes, all beginning at 8:00am and ending at 2:20pm. NYC Department of Education determines when our enrollment period can begin. Parents who may need longer hours (2:20-6pm) can enroll their child in the Extended Day Program for a fee.
