Annual allocation of New York State grant funds will make this early education program available to children living in the Saranac Central School District.  Children must be 4 years old by December 1, 2024, to be eligible for this program.  Children who are age eligible to attend Kindergarten cannot be enrolled in our Pre-K Program.

Our students are placed in inclusive classrooms, located at one of our 3 locations: Adirondack Helping Hands in Cadyville, Morrisonville Elementary School or Saranac Elementary School. Specific classroom placements are based upon programming needs, travel distances and other circumstances.


Free bus transportation is provided to all our program sites.  However, children need to be 4 years old to ride our buses.  Families of children who start the program at 3 years old will need to provide their own transportation until one day after their child’s 4th birthday.
