The school year is right around the corner, but there is still time to register your child for Pre-K. July 27th the Partnership is holding a final “Application Blitz Day” in an effort to register more 4-year-olds for Pre-K in Durham County. The Blitz will take place at 1201 S. Briggs Ave. Suite 210 from 9am-1pm.
• Copy of child’s birth certificate
• Proof of current address in Durham County (lease/mortgage or utility statement)
• Proof of ALL household income, child support, SSI/A, etc.
Reports from the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute (FPG) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill shows that NC pre-kindergarten has produced learning gains for children that can last well into elementary school.
At the end of kindergarten, the children who participated in NC Pre-K had better math skills and executive functioning skills, which help students regulate themselves and perform better in school. Low-income children in the program also went on to score better on language and math end-of-grade tests in third grade, compared to poor children who weren’t in the program.
“With the new expansions more seats are available to all children in Durham County.”
Applications will not be processed without necessary documentation. The full application can be downloaded and filled out prior to visiting, or it can be filled out there.

Durham County’s NC Pre-K program is a community-based voluntary program that provides high-quality early educational experiences to prepare 4-year-olds for kindergarten. The NC Pre-K program operates in private class rooms, Durham Public Schools and Durham Head Start centers. The universal application process is a collaborative effort led by the Partnership to reach families with 4-year-olds in Durham and assist them in applying for available slots.
