Pre-Kindergarten

Pre-registration for pre-Kindergarten is now completed.

Offers were made by the Department of Education’s Office of Enrollment in April to zoned applicants with an older brother or sister at PS 58.  At this time, all seats have been filled.  If any families decline their seat, we will call families from our wait list in the order assigned by the Department of Education.  If you are wait-listed, there is no need to contact the school.  Please be assured that we will call you if we reach your child’s number on the wait list.

If your child did not get a seat at PS 58, we hope that you were matched to another program you selected.  Seats are available throughout the borough and city.  Please remember that you can apply to programs with seats available through May 2.  See below.

School Year 2018-2019 – Round 2 deadline extended May 2

If your child was born in 2014, you’re ready to apply to pre-K.  The Main Round of the pre-K application closed March 30, 2018. However, the Department of Education is currently accepting late applications until May 2.

  • 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 extended to May 2. If you have any questions, visit Pre-K Admissions or call 718-935-2009.
