We are celebrating our newest PreK class for three-year-olds!
Whitney Point has made it a priority to provide quality full-day education for the young children of our community. For many years, Whitney Point had half-day PreK for four-year-olds, and in 2014 the district applied for and received a competitive NYS grant to move to a full-day PreK program for 78 four-year-olds. In 2017, Whitney Point applied for and received a competitive NYS grant to add three full-day classes for three-year-olds.
In 2019, the district applied and was awarded a NYS grant to grow th PreK program to include six full-day classes for four-year-olds and five full-day classes for three-year-olds by the fall of 2020. One of these new classes, for three-year-olds, began at the end of January at the site of our community partner, the Whitney Point Preschool and Daycare.
Whitney Point offers PreK in partnership with two community organizations: the Whitney Point Preschool and Daycare and Opportunities for Broome Head Start. There are PreK classes held at:
- Caryl E Adams Primary School
- Saving Grace Arts Center, 2654 Main Street, Whitney Point
- Whitney Point Pre-School and Daycare building, 2496 West Main Street, Whitney Point
- Whitney Point Head Start building, 2496 W. Main Street, Whitney Point
