The Ithaca City School District Prekindergarten programs provide comprehensive educational programs designed to meet the learning needs and styles of preschoolers. Working in partnership with families, the staff create a safe, caring learning environment that is both supportive and challenging for children. ICSD has been providing early childhood education programs for 3 and 4 year olds at local elementary schools since 1975. The Universal Prekindergarten Program (UPK) allows us to expand our collaboration with community based settings
