Are you a parent with a child born in 2012?
Did you know that in New York City, children are eligible for kindergarten in the year they turn five years old?
If your child was born in 2012, and you live in NYC, submit a kindergarten application by Friday, January 13, 2017 to guarantee your child’s placement into a kindergarten classroom for the 2017-18 school year, which begins September 2017.
You can apply for kindergarten using one of three ways:
- Online via our application site
- By phone at (718) 935-2400
- In person at your local Family Welcome Center
As you apply, keep in mind that all applications received by the January 13 deadline are treated the same – our application process is not first-come, first-served. Applicants will receive placement offers in March 2017, and pre-registration begins in April 2017.
