We are pleased to inform you that the Vestal Central school district is planning to continue its UPK Program for the 2023-2024 School year, contingent upon the receipt of grant funding from New York State.

About the program:

  • The program runs Monday-Friday and follows the Vestal Central School District calendar for holidays and school closings/delays due to inclement weather.
  • We anticipate offering both half day (approx. 2.5 hours) and full day (approx. 5 hours) options for families.
  • Parents are responsible for transporting their child to and from the program.
  • There is a limited number of spots available for the program. A required lottery will be conducted if more applications are received than spots.

UPK Program Requirements

  • The child must be 4 years old on or before December 1, 2023.
  • You must be a resident of the Vestal Central School District
  • Complete the UPK application using Operoo and submit your required documents.
