Children are eligible to attend free, NYC Universal Pre-K programs the year they turn 4.

Current Year

At this time we have filled all our pre-K seats and have a wait list of zoned children for the current year. To add your child’s name, you must come in person to the school office.

You can search for an alternate high-quality, free, Universal Pre-K program at the Department of Education’s website: There are programs with seats available. Use the Find A School tool at the top of the homepage.

Next school year, September 2020

We have no dates for the upcoming citywide pre-K application period for September 2020. This period is usually open from mid January to mid February or March. Please read the information available at the NYC Department of Education’s Pre-K Enrollment web page. You can sign up for the Pre-K admissions newsletter from the Department of Education so that you will be notified when the application period for 2020-2021 opens.

Potential Rezoning for 2020

Families should be aware that our school is part of a potential re-zoning plan which would affect all new students applying for entry in Sept. 2020. Please visit our Community Education Council District 15 website to view the presentation by the Office of District Planning, to sign up for updates from the CEC, and to learn of upcoming CEC meetings.

Pre-K Information Session and Tour

We will announce our early 2020 Pre-K Information Session date by the end of November. At that session, we will hear from our Pre-K teachers and learn about the day to day routines of our Pre-K students. We will take a short tour of the main building and visit our single Pre-K classroom here in the main building. We do not provide tours of our two Pre-K classrooms at our annex, 131 Union Street.
