NC Pre-K
Dare County's preschool program is a blended NC Pre-K and Title I funded program. The program serves over 150 students annually in six classrooms at four elementary schools (Cape Hatteras Elementary, First Flight Elementary, Manteo Elementary, and Nags Head Elementary). The program emphasizes kindergarten readiness skills and provides our youngest students with a rich learning environment.
Quality preschool opportunities benefit communities by decreasing retentions and dropouts, and by improving overall student achievement.

To be eligible for this program, students must be: 
- 4 years old by August 31, 2018
- a resident of Dare County
- eligibility is determined by parent's income level and other risk factors
