What is NC Pre-Kindergarten (NC Pre-K)?
NC Pre-Kindergarten is a fun and exciting learning opportunity for children. They develop many skills which make the transition to kindergarten easier. NC Pre-Kindergarten classrooms in our community operate at least six hours a day Monday through Friday from late August-June. Year-round school sites begin in July. 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. Funding for Pre-Kindergarten classes comes from Title I, Head Start, NC Pre-K, and Exceptional Children. Each funding source has different eligibility criteria. By submitting an application you will be considered for all possible placements.
