Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci invites youngsters who are eligible to enter kindergarten this September to participate in our Summer Pre-K Recreation Program which is designed to introduce youngsters to a school atmosphere. Our educational goals will be to prepare children for their first year in school. Certified teachers with elementary and kindergarten experience will work with the children and supervise activities at all times.  The program will combine the indoor/outdoor facilities, kindergarten classrooms and the gymnasium at Radcliffe School.

This program is a great introduction to the basic hands-on curriculum of early education.  Children’s skills as they enter school at the kindergarten level are proven to have a significant impact on their later achievements.  We believe this program will contribute to maximizing a child’s learning potential at this stage. “This program allows children to become familiarized with a new environment in a gradual process and become prepared for that exciting first day of school” stated Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci. The Pre K-Program is such a wonderful time of growth and development and we are extremely excited to offer this program as one of our selections for the community. The curriculum of this program will cover all the necessary readiness standards to successfully and confidently enter your kindergartener in the fall.  The program will run from July 1 – July 26, 2019.

Online registration is available at or at the Recreation Department located at 44 Park Ave.  Registration will close for this program on June 3, 2019.  The fee for this program will be $95.00 per child.
