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 was open from February 24 through April 19. Parents can still apply online through MySchools. You can also apply by phone or in person at a Family Welcome Center.

Currently we have a wait list for Pre-K, so if you apply, your child will be added to the list. Use the Pre-K Directory on MySchools to find other Pre-K programs that may have seats available now.

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

You will be able to see your child’s wait list status at your MySchools account. Please understand that waitlist positions are fluid and may change if new families apply who have a higher priority for enrollment, see above.

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 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. Please read this post on the rezoning for the proposed changes to the zone and admissions policies.
