THIS INFORMATION IS FOR CHILDCARE PROVIDERS ONLY

Henderson County Pre-K funds may only be used to support services for young children in the year prior to entering kindergarten. The NC Pre-K Standardized Site Selection process allows the local NC Pre-K Planning Committee, through the work of the Site Selection Subcommittee, to identify sites that may be considered for NC Pre-K placement, based on need and the other factors identified in the Rubric.

Approval as a site does not guarantee that slots will be awarded, only that a site is eligible to serve as a placement option for NC Pre-K children.  We may/may not know the actual number of children in a geographic area until registration of children has been conducted.

The primary consideration for the selection of sites and the allocation of slots is based on meeting the needs of children and families with the highest quality early education settings. Consideration is also given to applicants who demonstrate high quality to ensure that a diverse selection of services is available for at-risk children.

Site Selection

The NC Pre-K Site Selection Committee will review all applications and make their recommendations to the NC Pre-K Committee.   Childcare centers located in geographic areas that have a high need for NC Pre-K classrooms will be prioritized during this process.  Sites may be visited during the site selection process.  Final decisions about site selection will be made by the NC Pre-K Committee.  Approved sites will be considered for new classrooms.
