Universal Pre-K at DCC

Get your child kindergarten-ready! As part of the Poughkeepsie City School District Universal Pre-K (UPK) program, we offer a strong start for young scholars.

Build Their Foundation for Learning

High-quality early childhood education makes a positive impact that can last a lifetime. Every child has access to this opportunity for free thanks to UPK.

Starting this 2024-25 school year, DCC’s Louis Greenspan Day Care Center will be a Poughkeepsie City School District UPK program site. To be eligible, children must reside within the school district and turn 4 on or before December 1, 2024. As required by New York State, a lottery is held for all UPK sites.

Learn more about the curriculum and benefits on the Poughkeepsie City School District UPK webpage.
