Pre-K Information

For the first time, BBP implemented a Pre-K Program for this school year at Sylvan Avenue Elementary School.

The lottery for the 2023-24 school year will be held on February 6, 2023. To be eligible to participate, children must be four (4) years of age by December 1, 2023. The full-day program will continue to be housed at Sylvan Avenue Elementary School and taught by New York State-certified teachers. The program will follow the Bayport-Blue Point School Calendar.

Based on state funding, this school year, there were 54 UPK slots available at BBP and up to 10 slots to attend a Community Based Organization, which is the Patchogue YMCA. The Request for Proposal process for Community Based Organizations will be completed prior to the February 6, 2023 lottery.

Students will be selected via a random lottery. The district does not have a first come first served basis list. However, a waitlist will be created for all registrants not selected for a slot.

Registration for our Pre-K Lottery will be a three-step process including online registration and a meeting with the District Registrar.
