Tuckahoe Preschool
2022-23 School Year


2022-23 UPK Spots Still Available

The District received fewer applications than seats available for the  2022-2023 Tuckahoe Universal Pre-K Program. We currently have 3 unfilled seats and we will accept applications on a first come first serve basis until we fill the remaining seats.  After the 3 seats have been filled, all other applications will be put on a “wait list.” See below for application information.

Tuckahoe Union Free School District is pleased to provide an opportunity for Tuckahoe families to enter a lottery for our Universal Pre-Kindergarten program (UPK). For the 2022-23 school year, we are partnering with a Tuckahoe based early childhood agency, Cornerstone Children’s Center, located at 65 Main Street, Tuckahoe, NY, 10707, to provide the program. The program will run five days per week from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM and will follow the school district calendar.  Eligible children must be four years old by December 1, 2022. Transportation is not provided

Parents interested in having their child considered for UPK must complete the Universal Pre-K Application Forms (Application Forms  - English) (Application Forms - Spanish). Please submit only one application packet per child.  


Applications may be submitted in one of two ways:

Spots for this program will be capped at 39 full day students based on state and federal funding. 

We are excited to offer this UPK program for the 2022-2023 school year, and look forward to working with our community partner to offer this valuable opportunity to eligible Tuckahoe families!
