Universal Prekindergarten Registration

We are still accepting students for our 2023-24 pre-k program. Students must be four (but not five) years of age on or before December 1, 2023 and residents of the District.

Our 2024-25 pre-k program is open to children who will turn four (but not five) years of age on or before December 1, 2024 and who are residents of the District. This is a full-day program with access to the school’s breakfast and lunch program. Transportation will be provided for children age 4 and older.

Registration is open now through March 31, 2024. If demand exceeds the seats available, the District will utilize a lottery system with parent/guardian notification in the spring via phone call and letter home. Any registrants after March 31 will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

For questions related to registration, please contact Chatham CSD's registrar, Emily Ponce, at quae@chatham.k12.ny.us or 518-392-1535. Emily can answer any questions and can schedule a phone/in-person registration meeting.
