School District Of The City Of York
District to open 14th Pre-K classroom for 2017-18 school year
The new classroom will be located at the Edgar Fahs Smith STEAM Academy, 701 Texas Ave.
Through a partnership with Community Progress Council, the school district has provided a high-quality Pre-Kindergarten program for York City 4-year-olds since the 2007-08 academic year.
Each classroom has a teacher and an assistant teacher. Class sizes are limited to a maximum of 20 students. Pre-K teachers hold bachelor’s degrees and Pennsylvania Department of Education certificates in early childhood education. The assistant teachers hold associate’s degrees or a Child Development Associate Certificate.
Pre-K gives children a chance to learn, become excited about school and be better prepared for kindergarten. The research-based curriculum focuses on building children’s social and academic skills.
To register your child for Pre-K, contact Pre-K Secretary Vicki Landis at (717) 849-1398 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Children must be 4 years old by Aug. 31, 2017 to be eligible. More information is available in the flier below.
