Registration for September 2021 UPK classes begins January 11-27, 2021. A lottery will be conducted on Friday, January 29 to determine placement, parents will be notified of placement during the first week of February. Those that enroll after the January 29, 2021 lottery will be placed if and where spots are available. Registration packets are available below, or by visiting the District Office located in the Gananda Middle School at 1500 Dayspring Ridge, Walworth, NY 14568.
Registration is open to all 3 and 4-year old children that reside in the Gananda Central School District. To qualify for the UPK program your child must be 3 or 4-years of age by December 1, 2021. If your child will be 5-years old on or before December 1, 2021, they will not be eligible for the Gananda UPK program per the New York State Education Department. They will need to enroll in kindergarten or a private preschool program.
** Please note: if your child is currently participating in our UPK program, you do not need to re-register your child. Students currently in the program will automatically roll up to the next level. If your child is currently in the UPK program and will not be participating in the program next year, please notify us as soon as possible.
We currently offer a 3-year old half day morning program, and a 4-year old half-day afternoon program, five days a week, Monday through Friday for our UPK students. We also offer a full-day 4-year old program Monday - Friday. How many sessions/programs we offer will be determined based on enrollment. Please enroll your child between January 11-27, 2021 so we can plan accordingly.
All UPK students will be bused to school and back home at the end of their school day. Transportation is only provided to addresses within the Gananda CSD.
