We are opening the NC Pre-K Site Selection Process for the 2020-2021 school year.  The Site Selection Process is required by the state and includes a Site Application.  The Site Application must be completed by a qualified child care center with a temporary, 4 or 5 star license rating in order to be considered as an NC Pre-K site.  An NC Pre-K Site Selection Rubric Tool that scores applications will be used to determine child care centers best equipped to serve as an NC Pre-K site. 

The NC Pre-K Site Selection Committee will meet to approve sites for the 2020-2021 year.  Once approved your site may continue to serve as an ncpk site provided the site has met all of the assurances and requirements and there are no findings during the monitoring review.  Please also note that being approved as a NC Pre-K site does not guarantee placement of children and slot allocation is contingent on funding.

The completed packet is due to the Western Carolina Community Action no later than 5:00pm on Friday, August 7th 2020.  If you plan to apply, there will be a required meeting to discuss the application packet on Wednesday, August 5th, 2020 from 10-11am via zoom. Please register here.  Call 828-230-7726 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any questions.
