NCPreK is a Pre-K program designed to prepare 4-year-olds for Kindergarten. Acceptance is based on income eligibility and other criteria. NCPreK is a child-centered program providing the highest standard of learning available for 4-year-olds. We currently have a NC PreK classroom in all 8 of our elementary schools and 2 located at Sugar Hill HeadStart.

NC PreK Registration for the 2020-2021 school year has started!!!!

Please pick up a packet at your local elementary school or print a copy of the attached documents. You will need to turn in a birth certificate, proof of income (W2s or paycheck stub), current well-check, and immunizations to complete the application process. If the student's birthday is between now and August 31, 2020, you can return the Health Assessment and Immunizations after turning in your packet. All packets need to be turned in at Pleasant Gardens Elementary's main office. 

We look forward to helping you register your child!
