Pre-Kindergarten Registration

5/18/2020 Screening update from Mr. Foti

Hoosic Valley has two full day (8:30 - 1:30) pre-kindergarten classrooms.  Our community is very lucky to have this service available!  Not only is it an amazing school experience for the children, but it is also free of charge for the family!  This program is funded through a NYS grant.  The teachers, however, are funded through the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO) with additional collaboration with Capital District Beginnings and Head Start. 

There are only two qualifications your children need to sign up for pre-k.  You must live in the Hoosic Valley District, and your child must turn four by December 1st.   The pre-k registration is available to all families who meet the qualifications mentioned above.  The children are picked for this program through a lottery system. The sign up period generally starts in March and goes to May.  We try and pick who is in the program by June.  This is a general time frame, because many times we need to make sure our funding is still available before picking the classes.  The lottery drawing is completely at random.  The names literally all go into a hat and the names are picked.  Families will be contacted in order of being picked; all the registered children are given a number for the waiting list.  If someone decides not to take a spot or backs out, the next person on the waiting list gets called to get into the program.
