Anyone knows which public pre-k and K a property on Amherst street between Strantford Ave and Road St belongs to? It starts from 3 or 4 years old?
How is that pre-k?
Thank u!

I think that's part of the Mineola School district. You can enter the exact address here to find your school district. American FactFinder

Mineola has a pre-k and k program at the Willis Ave school. The pre-k is a lottery system ( last I heard), but everyone can enroll for K. The cut-off date is Dec 31 ( your child should be 4 by Dec 31 of the year he/she would join the pre-k.. 5 for K).

Herricks does not have pre-k. The cut-off for Herricks K is 5 years by Dec 1.

Harbor Child Care is the provider appointed by the Herricks SD to run the Pre-K program, which is based on a lottery system. Is anyone familiar with the quality of the Pre-K program provided by Harbor Child Care?

I visited the regular day care program provided by Harbor Child Care (which is run separately from the Pre-K program) and was not impressed. Kids aged 18 to 36 months were lumped into the same class, which is highly inappropriate due to different developmental needs.

Just wondering whether the Pre-K program is run at a higher quality....
