Universal Pre-K

Universal Pre-K (UPK)

4 Years, Part-Day

Care-a-lot Child Care has been chosen by the Greece, Rush-Henrietta and Canandaigua School Districts to offer the NYS Universal Pre-Kindergarten program. This is a program for children who will be entering Kindergarten the following Fall. Apply through your school district to join us for this enriching opportunity!

Wrap-around care is also available for a full-day learning experience, while parents can still have a full day of work. We know how hard it is for working parents to take part in a 2.5 hour long program, so let us take care of dropping off and picking up your child at the program, while you have peace of mind at work. Our wrap-around program also offers a discounted rate when your child is part of the UPK program.


How We Care

Care-a-lot Greece and Canandaigua are part of CACFP (Child Adult Care Food Program) which allows us to offer meals to our UPK students. Our morning program offers a nutritious breakfast, while our afternoon program offers lunch. We are a nut free facility and accommodate food allergies when we can.

No two days are the same in our UPK program! While our teachers have a strict curriculum to follow from their respective school district, they do so in a way that is fun and engaging and keeps the children on their toes!

Our teachers are NYS Teaching certified, and we utilize the same curriculum that the school district does.  So, to answer your question, yes, your child will be more than ready and prepared for kindergarten!
