Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK)

 3 children holding hands
Lottery Application Deadline: July 19, 2022


Farmingdale Schools will continue to run the half day, 5 days a week, 2022-2023 Universal Pre K Program at no cost to families. At this point in time students have already been placed in the half day programs and a few students remain on the waitlist. We will continue to do our best to place those students in the half day program.

In addition, our district has also been given the opportunity to offer a limited (36 seats) full-day Pre K program. Selection for this program will also be via a randomized lottery system.

Farmingdale is still working out the details and this program is tentative, but in order to establish classes in time for the fall, we need to hear from you now! Please let us know your interest in the program.

If you have already established your plans for the fall, please do not change them. Expressing interest in this full-day program will not impact on your current status in the half day program.

To be eligible to enter the lottery, you must complete our online application with the school district by July 19, 2022. If you have no online access, you can request a paper application by emailing Click HERE for online application.
