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 criteria for free and reduced-price school meals.

The program is provided by Questar III, 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 and enriched 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.

If your child meets the eligibility requirements, you would like a registration packet mailed to you or have general questions, please contact Questar III Pre-K Teacher, Jennifer Welch, at 518-758-7575  (ext. 6101) or via email at
