Due to COVID, we will continue to accept NC Pre-K applications for the current school year through May 21.

The North Carolina Prekindergarten Program (NCPre-K), (formerly known as the More at Four Program,) provides high quality educational experiences for income-eligible four-year-olds, in order to enhance their kindergarten readiness. Children served by NCPre-K typically attend a full school day (6-1/2 hours), full school year program (10 months) and may be served in classrooms in the public schools, licensed child care centers or Head Start programs.

The program targets children who are four years old by August 31, will be entering kindergarten the following year, and who may be at risk for poor school outcomes. Factors that can influence poor school outcomes include low income, limited English proficiency, identified disability, chronic health condition and developmental or educational need.

“Most of the children we serve in this program will be children who have not previously received services. These children benefit from a year of pre-kindergarten by being prepared social-emotionally and cognitively to participate equally in the kindergarten learning experience.”
~ Dr. Victoria Byrd, Former Executive Director
