Bronx House is proud to offer our Universal Pre- Kindergarten (UPK) program in conjunction with the NYC Board of Education for children born in 2008. Our UPK program offers a warm, nurturing, and stimulating atmosphere where children can learn new skills, meet new friends, and discover the joy of learning. Pre-K is an essential preparation for elementary school. Children become familiar with routines, rules, and sharing with others. Classes are led by State certified teachers, with the assistance of associate teachers.
