2024-25 Pre-Kindergarten Information

The Katonah-Lewisboro School District (KLSD) will be offering a full-day, tuition-free Pre-K program for eligible 4-year-old children for the 2024-25 school year. This program is being funded through Pre-K grant funds awarded to KLSD by the New York State Education Department.

The number of the spots available is limited to 16 for the 2024-25 school year. New York State mandates that when a district has limited spots available it must fill those spots through a randomized lottery system.
