Universal Pre-K 4
All of the elementary schools in the Niagara Falls School District have full-day Universal Pre-K 4 classrooms. Pre-K 4 students follow the same schedule that the Kindergarten-6th grade students follow, beginning at 8:45 am each morning, and ending at 3:00pm each afternoon except on Tuesdays. On Tuesdays, all elementary students are dismissed at 2:00 pm.
Pre-K 4 classes are made up of a maximum of 20 students, 1 certified teacher and 2 classroom associates. Throughout each day, students are actively engaged in “purposeful play” activities that reflect the New York State Early Childhood Guidelines.
In addition to the classroom learning environment, students receive additional music, art and physical education instruction from the content area specialists.
All students receive both breakfast and lunch.
Transportation is not provided for Pre-K students.
