Free Prekindergarten Program

Richmond Hill Children’s Centerstar

Pre-K for All (PKA) formerly known as Universal Prekindergarten.

Richmond Hill Children’s Center is a NYC DOE Authorized Pre-K for All provider, offering a free full day program. Our NYS certified teachers have provided a caring, educational environment where children can both learn and have fun. The PKA program provides a nurturing environment where the children’s natural curiosity is piqued as they are allowed to explore and master his/her world through play and first hand experiences. The classroom is divided into centers where everything is clearly labeled. The centers are designed to allow for social interaction, stimulate the thought process, provide for opportunities for choices, enhance reasoning skills, promote cognitive development, foster physical development, and improve coordination. Our PKA program is free and operates between 8:45am and 3:05pm.

Extended hours are available between 7am and 6:30pm for a fee.

Children born between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012, and who reside in New York City are eligible to participate in the PKA program. Parents/guardians of applicants must be able to provide proof of New York City residence and proof of their child’s birth.
