• UPK Community Provider Registration 2024-25

    Apply for UPK at Community-Based Providers, Independent Schools and Family Child Care for 2024-2025

    Update (January 24, 2024): Applications for School Year 2024-2025 will open on Monday, March 25th, 2024. 

    You can apply in two ways:


    • Directly through the UPK-funded community provider. BPS works with 20+organizations and 30+site locations - who are independent organizations funded by the City of Boston - and the community provider can register the UPK student at their organization. Families can view their options here or see the map below. 

    • Online, you can apply in one place and rank your top three choices. The application link will be posted here on March 25. 

  • There is no geographic restriction for UPK at community-based providers, other than Boston residency. For example, a family can choose a community-based provider site close to work, another caregiver, or based on another convenience factor.

    In order to register a child for Universal Pre-K at Boston Public Schools or community-based providers, you must provide two documents verifying the child's address and one document verifying the child's age. If you are applying for UPK at a community-based provider, you will be asked to upload the documents into the application and enrollment platform (SchoolMint).
