North Carolina Pre-kindergarten Program

Kids' Korner Child Development Center is proud to offer an NCPK classroom to eligible four year old children. This classroom is free to participants. The differences between this and our private pre-k classroom include; 1:18 ratio, teacher must be B-K licensed, class hours are 8:00-2:30, and follows KCS school year calendar. To apply for this program please visit Cabarrus Partnership for Children's website.

The NC Pre-K Program is designed to provide high-quality educational experiences to enhance school readiness for eligible four-year-old children. The NC Pre-K Program Requirements are built on the National Education Goals Panel’s premise that to be successful academically in school, children need to be prepared in all five of the developmental domains that are critical to children’s overall well-being and success in reading and math as they enter school:

  • Approaches to play and learning

  • Emotional and social development

  • Health and Physical Development

  • Language development and communication

  • Cognitive development

The NC Pre-K Program Requirements are designed to ensure that a high-quality pre-kindergarten classroom experience is provided for eligible four-year-old children in each local NC Pre-K Program and that, to the extent possible, uniformity exists across the state. Programs are also required to meet the NC Child Care Rules.  North Carolina is one of four states with a Pre-K program that meets all 10 National Institute of Early Education Research Benchmarks (NIEER).  Benchmarks include comprehensive Early Learning Standards; staff meet education/licensure requirements, professional development; 1:9 staff/child ratio; developmental screens and referral; evidence-based curriculum and formative assessments; monitoring and nutritional requirements.
