If you currently live in NYC and have a child born in 2017, you can still participate in the 2021 Pre-K Admissions process!

Available citywide, pre-K provides four-year-old children with opportunities to develop language, social skills, and their understanding of the world around them, at no cost to City families.

Pre-K programs are available in NYC Early Education Centers (NYCEECs), District Schools, and Pre-K Centers across the City, and there is a pre-K seat available for every eligible four-year-old child in the City. To learn more about the pre-K, including locations, admissions priorities, and other info, log into MySchools, and explore programs near you or across the five boroughs.

But hurry; the 2021 Pre-K Admissions process ends on Monday, April 19, so submit your application TODAY!
