Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) Admissions! If you live in New York City and your child is turning 4 years old in 2014, he or she is eligible to attend a free pre-k program beginning this September 2014.Pre-k programs are available at public schools and community-based organizations (CBOs). You can apply to programs at public schools and CBOs through two separate processes. A list of both public school and CBO pre-k programs will be available in the 2014-2015 Pre-Kindergarten Directory in early March. As you start thinking about applying to pre-k, please keep in mind the following important details:
Public School Pre-K Programs
– Apply between March 3, 2014 – April 1, 2014
– Apply online or in-person at an Enrollment Office starting March 3, 2014
– There is no advantage to applying early. All applications submitted by the deadline will be processed at the same time.
Community-Based Organization (CBO) Pre-K Programs
– CBOs manage their own admissions; contact CBOs directly to apply.
– Admissions policies vary by CBO
– Applications are reviewed and processed on an ongoing basis until all seats are filled.
