In 1997, New York State lawmakers passed Universal Prekindergarten
legislation (UPK) providing half-day preschool funding for children
who turn age 4 by December 1st of the given year. Shortly
after this legislation was enacted, the Montessori Center of Nyack
began offering UPK classes to the children of Rockland County. We
expanded our program to accommodate full-day students when the state
made this option available.
Full-day state-funded students are taught in our Second Floor
Half-day state-funded children are taught in our Downstairs, Main
Floor and Second Floor Classrooms.
Please consult your individual school district for additional
information regarding the application process.
