Thank you for your interest in PS 58. The NYC Kindergarten application period for the 2021- 2022 is from December 10, 2020 to January 19, 2021.
All New York City families with children born in 2016 are encouraged to apply to Kindergarten. If your child is currently attending Pre-K (at PS 58 or at another UPK program), don’t forget to submit a Kindergarten application. There is no automatic “move up” to Kindergarten from Pre-K.
You can rank up to 12 programs/schools on your application.
PS 58 is a zoned school. Families get enrollment priority at their zoned school. The easiest way to see which elementary school is your zoned school is by using the School Search tool at the DOE website.
Apply over the phone by calling 718-935-2009
If you have questions about applying to PS 58, please contact Parent Coordinator Joan Bredthauer at email@example.com.
Want to learn more? Visit the DOE Kindergarten Admissions website. Still have questions? Call The Elementary Admissions Team at 718-935-2009.
We offer Kindergarten (taught in English) and French Dual Language Kindergarten (taught 50% in English and 50% in French). Families may list both programs on their application. If you add French Dual Language to your child’s application, you will need to indicate how well your child speaks French.
If you indicated that your child speaks French “very well” on your recent French DLP application, and you live in our school zone, please make your child’s appointment for a fluency assessment.* Appointments are available in the mornings from January 19 through February 5. At your appointment, a French DLP teacher will meet with your child in person at school for a 15 minute conversation in French! Twins? Make two appointments.
2. Review the important health safety information below:
We look forward to meeting you.
* If your child speaks French “only a little” or “not at all” please do not make an appointment.
There is an additional priority for our Dual Language program for English Language Learners (children who speak French but little or no English). Zoning requirements still apply. For a complete list of enrollment priorities, visit the DOE Kindergarten Admissions website.
Your child is automatically placed on the wait list of all schools and programs that you ranked higher than your offered school. You will be able to see your child’s wait list status at your MySchools account after offers are made in the spring.
New students entering our school in September 2021 will not be affected by changes to zoning or admissions policies. To learn more about the latest recommendations and to provide feedback, please visit the CEC15 website and watch the recording of the Calendar Meeting for December 15, 2020.
If you have feedback on the rezoning, please write to: BrooklynZoning@schools.nyc.gov, Superintendent Anita Skop at ASkop@schools.nyc.gov, or the Community Education Council District 15 at CEC15@schools.nyc.gov
