    Greetings Pre-K Parents & Guardians.
    This is a gentle reminder to complete a Kindergarten Application for your child.  Even though your child is currently enrolled in our Pre-K program, it it still necessary to complete the Kindergarten application.

    We encourage each of our pre-K families to submit an application before the Friday, January 20, 2023 deadline. Only families who apply by this deadline will receive a kindergarten offer in April.


    As a reminder, families can submit an application online at MySchools.nyc or over the phone by calling 718-935-2009. All applications submitted by the January 20 deadline will be treated equally, according to schools' admissions priorities. Families can also use the same application to apply to kindergarten Gifted and Talented programs.
