    The half-day program, which is open to any four-year-old child residing in the district (child must be four by Dec. 1, 2020), operates from three sites: 

    • Windermere Boulevard Elementary School, at 291 Windermere Blvd. - Openings exist
    • Amherst Community Church Child Care Center, at 77 Washington Highway - Openings exist
    • Amherst Nursery School, at 350 Saratoga Rd. - At capacity

    Transportation is provided to and from the Windermere site. Parents are responsible for transportation at the Amherst Community Church and Amherst Nursery School sites. Placements are not guaranteed because class sizes are limited. As a result of the program being funded by grants, definite confirmation will occur only after the New York State budget is passed and Universal Pre-kindergarten funding is guaranteed.
