A message from the Administrator

My name is Jeanne Huntley and I have been at CPC for four years.  Prior to taking on this job, I served as a teacher, guidance counselor, Assistant Principal, Principal, and Assistant Superintendent with Carteret County Schools.  I have also served as Interim Superintendent and worked as a Public School Outreach Coordinator for The Hill Center in Durham, NC. I have a total of 42 years in education. When I am not in school, I enjoy reading, crafting (just about anything), and being with my family especially my two very special twin granddaughters, Vivi and Madi, who are nine. I also love ACC basketball especially pulling for the Tarheels, my Alma Mater! 


One may ask, "Why?"  My best answer is, "Because I absolutely love kids and seeing them learn. I also love to help cultivate great educators in what I consider the most important job in the whole universe in a setting I whole-heartedly support-public education!"  Without fine educators, there would be no other professions.  


Carteret Preschool Center is a warm and welcoming school of 62 children ages 3-5 who are served by an exceptional staff that becomes part of their family.  We put relationships at the top of our priorities - teaching children the important social-emotional skills that support great academic results.  We aspire to serve the unique needs of all of our children. 


Although COVID has changed "the way" we do things, it has not  changed "why" we do what we do. That is because we believe that ALL children need to have an early foundation where they are loved, supported, and taught in a loving environment. This is the CPC way.

NEW NC PRE-K Application Process

In light of the restrictions for COVID-19, we have had to revise our NC Pre-K enrollment process. 


A la luz de las restricciones para COVID-19, hemos tenido que revisar nuestro proceso de inscripción NC Pre-K..


Application Guidelines for NC Pre-K in Carteret County



Who can apply? 

Any child living in Carteret County who will be four years old by August 31, 2020.


How to complete an application for 2020-2021?

Because of the recent COVID-19 restrictions, we have new guidelines.  Applications MUST be completed online and submitted.  If someone does not have a computer or internet, an appointment can be made at a school site closest to the residence.  Only one adult can come to the school to use a computer.  Hands must be washed and then sanitized before using equipment and a mask must be worn. NO CHILDREN ARE ALLOWED IN THE SCHOOL BUILDINGS. Once this is completed online, you will be contacted about completing a phone or virtual interview with your child and a teacher to complete the "screening" part of this process. 


Online applications can be found on the Carteret County Schools website referenced above and then going to the tab that is labeled “Parents” and then on that drop down, Pre-Kindergarten.


If you need additional support, please call Jeanne Huntley at 252-223-4574 between the hours of 9-1 (M-F) or through email at jeanne.huntley@carteretk12.org.


Be sure to read through all information you will need to have copied and uploaded before beginning.  This needs to be done in one sitting.  Using a smartphone will allow you to either scan documents or submit pictures. If you prefer to put copies in a sealed manilla envelope and drop off at the elementary site closest to your residence that has a Pre-K Program, you will need to call the school and check if there will be someone in the office.  Mark on the front.  NC Pre K Supporting Documents 2020-2021- Child’s Name ______________  Date dropped off ______Please forward to Carteret County NC Pre K Administrator.



Pautas de aplicación para NC Pre-K en el condado de Carteret



¿Quién puede solicitarlo? 

Cualquier niño que viva en el condado de Carteret que tenga cuatro años de edad antes del 31 de agosto de 2020.


¿Cómo completar una solicitud para 2020-2021?

Debido a las recientes restricciones COVID-19, tenemos nuevas directrices.  Las solicitudes DEBEN completarse en línea y enviarse.  Si alguien no tiene una computadora o Internet, se puede hacer una cita en un sitio escolar más cercano a la residencia.  Sólo un adulto puede venir a la escuela para usar una computadora.  Las manos deben lavarse y luego desinfectarse antes de usar el equipo y se debe usar una máscara. NO SE PERMITEN NIÑOS EN LOS EDIFICIOS DE LA ESCUELA. Una vez que esto se complete en línea, se le contactará acerca de completar un teléfono o entrevista virtual con su hijo y un maestro para completar la parte de "screening" de este proceso. 



Las aplicaciones en línea se pueden encontrar en el sitio web de las Escuelas del Condado de Carteret mencionados anteriormente y luego ir a la pestaña que se etiqueta como "Padres" y luego en ese menú desplegable, Pre-Kindergarten.


Si necesita asistencia adicional, llame a Jeanne Huntley al 252-223-4574 entre las horas de 9-1 (M-F) o por correo electrónico a jeanne.huntley@carteretk12.org.


Asegúrese de leer toda la información que necesitará haber copiado y cargado antes de comenzar.  Esto debe hacerse en una sola sesión.  El uso de un teléfono inteligente le permitirá escanear documentos o enviar imágenes. Si prefiere poner copias en un sobre de manilla sellado y dejar en el sitio primario más cercano a su residencia que tiene un Programa Pre-K, tendrá que llamar a la escuela y verificar si habrá alguien en la oficina.  Marca en el frente.  Documentos de apoyo DE NC Pre K 2020-2021 Nombre del niño ______________ Fecha cedió ______ Por favor, adelante al Administrador de Carteret County NC Pre K.

Thank You

We have been lucky enough to be "adopted" this year by some very special friends at St. Francis by the Sea Episcopal Church.  They have provided school supplies, parties, and gifts for all.  We have loved our community partners and look forward to the good relationships we will continue to have.
