Pre-Kindergarten 3 and 4
Pre-Kindergarten 3 and Pre-Kindergarten 4 (formerly known as Extended Pre-Kindergarten and Universal Pre-Kindergarten) are FREE preschool programs for any child in the Rochester City School District. Extended care is available with our PK-3 and PK-4 Wrap Option.
Pre-Kindergarten 3 is for 3 year olds and Pre-Kindergarten 4 is for 4 year olds.
Participation in Pre-Kindergarten 3 or 4 includes:
- Free family membership
- Weekly swim lessons
- Active play and gym time
- Free bus passes
- Healthy breakfast, lunch, and snack
A developmental learning approach is combined with fun, values-based activities taught by a NYS certified teacher in our Pre-Kindergarten programs. The length mirrors a traditional Kindergarten program of 6 hours per day, 180 days per year. Parents may choose a full day option with on-going care during regular child care hours.
