Nauraushaun Nursery School is a fully certified Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) preschool. All of our 4's classes consist of both UPK and non-UPK students. As such, any child registered at NNS for the upcoming school year will automatically have a spot at NNS if they are selected for UPK.
Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) is a program offered by the New York State Education Department and participating local school districts that provides a free pre-k education for a limited number of qualified applicants on a lottery basis. UPK applications typically become available at the end of January for the upcoming school year. Students must turn 4 years old by December 1st of the current year. Parents are typically notified mid to late May if they have been accepted into the UPK program.
Applications and additional information can be found at Child Care Resources of Rockland for the districts of Clarkstown, Nanuet, Nyack, Pearl River, Ramapo Central, South Orangetown, and North Rockland.
