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.
