Full Day Univeral PreKindergarten

Jack & Jill Schools have been officially contracted Department of Education Universal Pre-K providers since 1998, the inception of the Universal Prekindergarten Program in New York City.  Our schools are known as “Community Based Organizations ‘CBOs” and are situated in Queens Community School Districts 25(Flushing/College Point/Whitestone) and District 26 (Fresh Meadows, Hollis Hills, Jamaica Estates, Bayside & Little Neck).

Staff are supervised and trained by Department of Education Early Childhood Coordinators in implementing the new New York State Prekindergarten Foundation for the Common Core Learning Standards, so that our students will smoothly transition and be ready to meet the demands of Kindergarten in NYC’s public school system.

Universal Pre-K seats are available Full Days from 9:00 AM to 3:20 PM FREE TO ALL 4-year old children residing in the 5 boroughs of NYC.  Proof of residency, passports and/or birth certificates, and current immunization records are absolutely necessary in order to officially register for the FREE Programs.  Add-on hours or wrap-around sessions are available at nominal tuition rates to extend the days between the hours of 7:30am & 6:00pm.

Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis and generally begins in March of each year for the following school year.
