Welcome To Kaleidoscope Pre-K for All Page!
If your child is turning four years old in 2020, it’s time to think about pre-kindergarten. Children born in 2016 who live in New York City are eligible to participate in full day, free pre-kindergarten programs that are offered at ECDC Kaleidoscope.
Early Childhood Development Center Kaleidoscope is an education center created for young children to increase their exposure to the arts, nurture their creative expression, and to build a strong foundation for school readiness and life-long learning.
In our playful environment, children develop a strong kinesthetic awareness of themselves, build social skills, self-esteem, self-expression, and independent thinking.
Early Childhood Development Center Kaleidoscope offers morning snacks and lunch for Pre-K students and additional snacks for children that stay for the afterschool program. We also offer Morning, After school, Enrichment programs, mini camps and a Summer Program for a fee.
Pre-K for All Schedule
Free Pre-K runs from 9:00 am – 3:20 pm Monday-Friday for 180 days during a school year. Pre-K for All closely follows the NYC public school schedule.
Pre-K Special Education
• Parents who believe their child has special needs can have them evaluated by their local Committee on Pre-School Special Education (CPSE). Let us know if you would like us to assist you in writing a request for your child’s free evaluation.
• If a student is determined to need special services, an Individual Education Plan (IEP) will be developed by the CPSE and the parent and the student will begin to receive free special services at his/her Pre-K center.
Early Childhood Development Center Kaleidoscope incorporates 10 Interdisciplinary Units of Study created by the Division of Early Childhood Education to support student learning in all domains using developmentally appropriate practice. During the year, the units we explore are: Welcome to Pre-K, All About Us, Five Senses, Where We Live, Light, Transportation, Water, Plants, Babies, and Transformation.
