Does NC have a pre-k program for 4-year-olds that is either free or at discounted rates in which qualification is not based on income? I know some states have this - I think in FL it was called UPK or VPK.

Im interested about this as well...the town we live in in New Jersey has a pre-school program for 3 and 4 year olds in the school district. Enrollment is done by lottery. I am interested in knowing if NC does this as well? More specifically Indian Trail...

There are free preschool programs in Union County, but they ARE income based along with a few other requirements.

Yes dear, is called "more at four" and is available through CMS.

There is a screening test that the kids go to for bright beginnings. You will want to contact them as early as Feb/March when your child is 3 to set up an appt. Both of my children went to Starmount Pre-k. They go for a full day and follow a kindergarten curriculum. This is a fantastic program and I recommend it. It is in the CMS system though, which does not include Indian Trail, Sorry.

I believe Union County has this as well through the public schools, it's the special ed pre K inclusion (in CT we called it "reverse mainstreaming"), where the special ed kids are entitled to pre k, and they need typical peers in the classrooms. There's something on the Union County website here:

This is not free. It is around 300 per month.
