Ichabod Crane Central School District’s school budget includes funding for a district-wide Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) program for resident children who reach the age of four on or before December 1 of the year students enter school. Priority for enrollment is given to students who meet the income criteria for free and reduced-price school meals.  For more information to determine if you meet the eligibility requirement, please visit

The program is provided by Questar III BOCES, the Ichabod Crane Central School District, and partners in collaboration with Advanced Therapy. The half-day program is located at Ichabod Crane Primary School. The AM session runs from 8:00 AM – 10:30 AM and the PM session runs from 11:30 AM – 2:00 PM. Transportation to and from the program is provided by families.

This comprehensive, enriched and integrated program, taught by a certified teacher with support from a certified teaching assistant, utilizes the NYS Pre-K Foundation for the Common Core program and the Creative Curriculum. It focuses on child-centered activities, the development of strong foundational skills in early literacy and numeracy, social interaction, and Kindergarten readiness skills.
