Children are eligible to attend free, NYC Universal Pre-K programs the year they turn 4.
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: http://schools.nyc.gov. There are programs with seats available. Use the Find A School tool at the top of the homepage.
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.
New students entering our school in September 2021 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 Community Education Council District 15 website. Scroll down to view the section on Equity & Excellence in D15 Through Rezoning & Admissions.
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.
