Time to start thinking about registering your child for pre-kindergarten!

NOW is time to start thinking about registering your child(ren) for Pre-Kindergarten at Broadalbin-Perth for the 2021-22 school year!

If your child will be four years old by December 1, 2021, they may be eligible to participate in the pre-k program. B-P has five full-day classrooms, with 90 slots available for students. Pre-k slots will be filled through a lottery, in which district officials will randomly select 90 children whose parents have turned in completed registration packets by the deadline, which is Thursday, May 20, 2021. Pre-K slots are NOT first come, first served.

Here’s how it works:

  1. First, click HERE to request a pre-k registration packet be mailed to you. (NOTE, this will pre-register you to receive a packet, but please know that the packets will not actually be mailed out until the first week of February.)
  2. Return the completed packet before the deadline, Thursday, May 20, 2021 (NOTE, only completed packets returned by the deadline will be entered into the lottery.)
  3. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 27, 2021 for our annual pre-K information night.
  4. Also mark your calendars for Tuesday, June 1, 2021. This is when the district will hold the lottery for in-district students.

A lot of your questions about Broadalbin-Perth’s pre-k program can likely be answered by visiting the pre-kindergarten page on the district website.

If you have additional questions or concerns please feel free to contact the district’s pre-k parent advocate Kaila Saltsman at (518) 954-2702 or by email at saltsmank@bpcsd.org.
