Register for UPK & Kindergarten

Registration has opened for the Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) Program within the Grand Island School District which runs two UPK sites. The Charlotte Sidway Elementary School location runs a morning and afternoon session. The Kiddo’s Korner Preschool, 2728 Stony Point Road, will provide an afternoon session as our community-based provider. To be eligible for the UPK program a child must be four years of age on or before Dec. 1, 2019 and a Grand Island resident. PreK registration appointments must be made in advance and began March 1, 2019.  Please call 773-8800 extension "O" to schedule a PreK registration appointment. The application deadline is Friday, May 17, 2019. The last appointment to register on this date will be 2 p.m. At your appointment, you will receive the UPK Provider Choice Lottery Form.

Kindergarten registration is ongoing for the 2019-2020 school year. If you have a child turning five years of age on or before Dec. 1, 2019 and you have NOT been contacted by the district, please call the District Office at 773-8800 so that your child can be registered.
