Pre-Kindergarten

School Year 2018-2019

If your child was born in 2014, you're ready to apply to pre-K during the citywide application period February 5 through March 30 (but remember: the application is not first-come first-served).

  • Read the Pre-K Directory to learn about the admissions process and explore the schools in your community.  PS 58's program is very small, and we highly recommend that you develop a list of alternative Universal Pre-K choices.  Last year, seat offers were sent to 54 families who had an older child attending PS 58--and about 30 families in this category were wait listed.
  • Attend an Admissions Event in February to find out how to apply for pre-K and get help with your application.
  • Visit pre-K programs to meet staff, see if a program is a good fit for your child, and test out the commute to and from your home. PS 58 will offer an Open House in our main building on January 11th at 9:15 AM.  We will offer tours of the Annex to families who receive seat offers from the Department of Education.

The deadline to apply to pre-K is March 30. If you have any questions, visit Pre-K Admissions or call 718-935-2009.
