NC Pre-K For Families
The North Carolina Pre-K Program is a high quality pre-kindergarten program that serves children who are at risk and prepares them for success in school. Pre-Kindergarten is a research-proven strategy for school readiness.
Children served by NC Pre-K attend a full school day, Monday through Friday, for the full school year that meets high-quality state standards. Classrooms are located in the public schools, licensed child care centers or Head Start programs. (SY 11-12 Site List) The program is community-based, voluntary, and designed to prepare at-risk four-year-olds in Johnston County for school success.
For the 2011 / 2012 School Year Johnston County had 347 slots.
The program serves children who are four years old by August 31, will be entering kindergarten the following year, and are at risk for poor school outcomes. Factors that put children at risk for poor school outcomes include low income, limited English proficiency, identified disability, chronic health condition and developmental or educational need. Children of Active Duty military families are also eligible. Priority is given to eligible children who have not been served in any other preschool or child care program.
