pk4a_logoslideSince the 2013-14 school year, New York City’s Pre-K for All program has been an absolute game-changer for the City’s four-year olds and their families.

Thanks to the program, thousands of our City’s youngest scholars have been able to obtain free, full day, high-quality early education that sets them up for academic success in the near-future and beyond.

Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received from City families about our pre-kindergarten programs, we are proud to announce that starting on Monday, February 5, families can begin to apply for admission into the City’s pre-k programs for next fall.


Who can apply to pre-k?

Families will be able to apply for pre-k online, by phone, or in person from February 5 – March 30, 2018, and interpretation services will be available in more than 200 languages for over-the-phone and in person application submissions.


Use the DOE’s Pre-K Finder to review each program’s Pre-K Quality Snapshot, which provides clear and concise data about individual pre-k programs.

To explore and identify pre-k programs near you, use our online Pre-K Finder or review this year’s Pre-K Directories for the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island.

You can also get to know the City’s pre-k options by attending our borough-based Pre-K Admissions Events in February, or by attending open houses hosted by pre-k programs across the five boroughs. To learn more about these pre-k events and open houses, visit our Pre-K Events website.

We look forward to seeing your applications beginning on Monday, February 5!
