Universal Pre-K
The first years of school shape a child’s lifelong emotional and intellectual development. However, tens of thousands of children in the Bronx struggle and fail in school because they lack high quality early education. This is a 10-month program that follows the New York Board of Education’s schedule. We also offer year-round daycare.

MARC’s Universal Pre-K program works to achieve significant, demonstrable and positive impact on children, helping them become lifelong learners, through:
  • Developing language, literacy, math, science, creative thinking, problem solving, and social skills.
  • Accessing progress.
  • Using a variety of ways to promote parent participation, as this is integral to the Pre-K program.
  • Free eye exams and dental checkups.
  • Nutritious school meals nutrition workshops.

We use Creative Curriculum, supported by the NYC Department of Education, which translates new early childhood education research and theory into a practical approach for working with children and their families.

We offer half-day and full-day programs, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the full day and 2 half day sessions from 8:30 am to 11am and 12:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
