ESM to Offer Full Day Pre-k for Fall 2022For the first time ever, ESM will offer a limited number of full day pre-kindergarten slots in its program starting in September of 2022. New York State awarded dedicated funding to ESM for this expansion.
Per the state, the openings are available on a lottery basis. Families interested in full day pre-k must register by June 24, 2022 for the lottery drawing. The full day program is expected to operate from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A drawing will be held for the 36 full day openings from all families submitting an application. The selected families will have until July 15, 2022 to accept the enrollment or the slot will be given to another child.
ESM will continue to offer half-day pre-k to any families wanting that option. When registering your child, families can select half day or enter the full day pre-k lottery drawing. Children must be 4 on or before Dec. 1, 2022 to participate.
Those who do not get selected for the full day program will have the opportunity for their child to automatically be enrolled in half day pre-k.
