What is NC Pre-Kindergarten (NC Pre-K)?

NC Pre-kindergarten classes are located in the Alamance Burlington School System, Head Start, and private child care centers. The program is free to qualifying families, except for minimal lunch fees when families do not qualify for free/reduced priced meals.
