Our pre-kindergarten classroom provides a safe, supportive and stimulating environment for young children. It offers a full-day program (6 hours and 20 minutes) and follows the New York City public school schedule. It is free. 

Goddard Riverside is one of the few community organizations selected to offer Pre-K as part of New York City's Universal Prekindergarten program. Pre-K helps children prepare for elementary school math and reading classes, so that they start their academic lives off on the right foot. It also teaches key social skills, such as how to interact with others, share, wait your turn and listen. 

Interested applicants are encouraged to register directly at the center. Students will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.
