NC PRE-KINDERGARTEN SERVICES INFORMATION 2022-2023
What is NC Pre-K?
Stokes Partnership for Children (SPC) is the Contract Administrator for the NC Pre-K program in Stokes County. Eligibility for all applicants is determined by SPC and NC Pre-K classrooms are monitored by SPC for compliance with state requirements. NC Pre-K is a fun and exciting learning opportunity for children that also helps them develop skills making the transition to kindergarten easier. NC Pre-K classrooms in our community generally follow the Stokes County Schools calendar and operate at least six and a half hours a day, Monday through Friday, from late August to early June. NC Pre-K classes are located in Stokes County Schools, Head Start, and private child care centers. By submitting an application, you will be considered for all possible placements.
