PreK enrollment

Registration for Hamburg Central's PreKindergarten (PreK) 2022-23 program at Charlotte Avenue Elementary School will be  accepted through April 1. There are both full-day and half-day PreK class options.

Placement in the full day classroom is by digital lottery, which will take place on April 20. Registration will be accepted after this date for the half-day session only, based on availability.

The program is available to children who will be four years old on or before Dec. 1, 2022. There is no cost to families who reside in the Hamburg Central School District and no income eligibility restrictions. The full-day classroom is a UPK classroom that is run in collaboration with the YMCA, and falls under the same New York State standards and guidelines as the half-day UPK classrooms.

Before and/or after-school extended hours are available on-site at the participant’s expense. The program provides meals and transportation to students Monday-Friday (one-way transportation for full-day).

PreK provides children with opportunities for experimentation, exploration, discovery, challenge and interaction. It helps them become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic learners through spontaneous activity, play, carefully prepared materials and guided experiences.
