Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) Program
The Ken-Ton School District in partnership with the Ken-Ton Family YMCA is proud to offer the Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) Program for children who will be 4 years of age on or before December 1, 2021. UPK is a free program open to all eligible children who reside within the Ken-Ton School District boundaries.
UPK instruction provides students with a strong foundation in critical skills to prepare them for success in kindergarten and beyond.
To be eligible for UPK during the 2021-22 school year which begins Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2021, children must be 4 years of age on or before December 1, 2021 (a child cannot turn 5 years of age between December 2, 2020, through and including December 1, 2021 to be eligible for UPK).
