Introducing - New Young Fives Program

The Young Fives program provides young children additional time to prepare for a successful kindergarten and school experience. The program fosters social, emotional, physical and academic development through a year of growth and discovery for children who need additional time for development and maturity before entering kindergarten. Students who take part in the Young Fives program will transition to traditional kindergarten the following school year. 
 
Students enrolling in the young fives program need to meet the age guidelines for enrollment in kindergarten. 

Parents interested in the program should register for 2021-2022 kindergarten at this link: https://ecollect.accelaschool.com/utica

In mid-April, additional information will be available for interested families.
