Frontier Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program
Frontier Central continues its in-house options for Pre-Kindergarten programs with funding from the NY State Education Department. Blasdell Elementary and Cloverbank Elementary will each have two sections (morning and afternoon) for pre-kindergarten students. Seventy-two four-year-olds will benefit from this program.
As in the past, the District will participate in a collaboration with Head Start, which operates a Universal Pre-Kindergarten program for eligible four-year old youngsters. Eligibility is based on federal Head Start guidelines. Frontier's Head Start pre-kindergarten is an extended day, 12-month program, which operates Monday through Friday at Blasdell Elementary School on South Park Avenue.
Edu-Kids, Inc. on Route 5 is another Frontier collaborative program. The children attend half day sessions, morning or afternoon, as they do in the Frontier in-house Universal Pre-Kindergarten program.
