The Onondaga Central PreK ProgramOnondaga Central School District will operate its own preschool program for four-year-old children. The program will offer preschool classes for four-year-old children on Monday thru Friday full-day program from 8:30 to 3:00. Transportation is provided for the 4-year-old pre-K along with Rockwell ES run. Children need to turn four years old before December 1.
The preschool program will offer a theme-based curriculum based on the New York State Benchmarks for Preschool. The children will participate in play; circle time, fine and gross motor activities, music, story time, physical education, and learning centers focused on readiness skills. Snacks will be provided by parents on a rotating schedule.
To register for preschool, parents will need to bring a copy of the birth certificate and two proofs of residency. We also require a parent or guardian photo ID (current driver's license). An immunization record, current physical, proof of a lead test, and a dental certificate are required before a child can begin school. These can be brought in or mailed to the school nurse, or faxed in from your doctor’s office (Fax 315-552-5076).
We are extremely excited that we are now able to offer a full-day preschool program to our district residents and prepare them for Kindergarten.
