Pre-Kindergarten 2021

Children are eligible to a attend free, NYC Universal Pre-K program the year they turn 4. Children born in 2017 are eligible to begin Pre-K in September 2021.

The citywide application period will be open from February 24 through April 19. Parents can apply online through MySchools. You can also apply by phone or in person at a Family Welcome Center.

Use the Pre-K Directory on MySchools to find other Pre-K programs that may have seats available.

We are not able to offer any in-person tours of our Pre-K Annex or main school building at this time. If you missed our March 10th virtual Open House, contact Parent Coordinator Joan Bredthauer for a link to the recording.

Enrollment Priorities

In NYC, priority for seat offers is given to zoned children who have a brother or sister already enrolled at our school. Next, seats are offered to zoned children. At PS 58, we usually fill most of our Pre-K seats with siblings of current students. We do not expect to have any seats available for children who live outside of our zone.

Seat Offers and Wait Lists

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.

Finding Your School Zone

To learn if your residence is currently zoned for PS 58, please use the Find a School tool at the Department of Education’s website.

Changes to our zone and admissions are postponed but will affect new students entering in the 2022-2023 school year.

New students entering our school in September 2022 will be affected by changes to admissions policies. These changes could include a reduction in the size of our school zone, or an elimination of individual school zones in our subdistrict and a switch to a lottery-based choice system. To learn more about the latest proposals and to provide feedback, please visit the District 15 Rezone Participatory Action Research Project website.

If you have feedback on the rezoning, please write to:
