Pre-K Application 

Every family of a four year old (children born in 2015) who resides in New York City can apply to pre-k beginning February 4th through March 15th. You can list up to 12 programs on your pre-K application.  Submit only one pre-k application per child.

        There are three ways you can apply to pre-K and they are as follows:

  • Online with MySchools in English, Spanish, Chinese, Bengali, Russian, Arabic, Urdu, Haitian Creole, Korean, or French
  • By phone at 718-935-2009
  • In person at a Family Welcome Center

Please note that pre-K admission is not first come, first served.  All applications submitted online, by phone or in person by the deadline are treated the same based on admissions priorities. Start exploring pre-K programs now:
