Pre-K

At PS196Q, we are committed to nurturing and supporting even our youngest learners.  Our Pre-Kindergarten, or Pre-K, students spend their days engaged in interactive play and exploration, making new connections between their budding minds and the world around them.

As in all New York City Pre-K classrooms, the Foundation for the Common Core guides students’ interactions in five Domains of Development:  1) Approaches to Learning, 2) Physical Development and Health, 3) Social and Emotional Development, 4) Communication, Language and Literacy, and 5) Cognition and Knowledge of the World.  You can read more about the Foundation by going here: http://schools.nyc.gov/Academics/EarlyChildhood/parentfamilies/readpreK.htm

Pre-K Hours

Mondays—Thursdays:  8:40 a.m. —3:00 p.m. 

Fridays:  7:50 a.m. —2:10 p.m.

A Parent’s Guide to Pre-Kindergarten

The New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE) has created this guide to help parents understand what they can expect in their child’s classroom, as well as ways they can support their development at home. Topics include: gross and fine motor skills, read aloud, center and choice time, class meeting, small group and meal time.  To read more (in English Arabic | Bengali | Chinese | French | Haitian Creole | Korean | Russian | Spanish | Urdu), go to: http://schools.nyc.gov/Academics/EarlyChildhood/parentfamilies/readpreK.htm

  1. Is there an aftercare or extended day program for pre-k kids, to bridge the gap between pre-k hours till 6pm?

    • We have not been told how many we will have next year. This year we have 1 class, 18 seats, which were all filled by siblings.

      • Do you mean that there is no seat available for other applicants for this year ? Thank you
