Pre-k Application for 2021-2022 is now open!

The pre-K application for the 2021-2022 school year is now open, and the deadline to apply is April 7, 2021! All New York City families with children born in 2017 can apply by submitting a pre-K application.

We encourage you to apply even if you are unsure of your plans for the fall! Children who attend pre-K get a strong start in school and life—they learn to problem-solve, ask questions, and explore the world around them. Now more than ever, Pre-K for All programs are here to provide children across the city with a safe, nurturing learning community.

Here’s how to get started:

  • Create a MySchools account—learn how in this video. With MySchools you can explore your child’s pre-K options, add programs to your application, and apply—all in one place.

  • If MySchools loads slowly on your first visit, don’t worry. Try refreshing the page or visiting the site at a later time. MySchools may experience high site traffic when the pre-K application opens.

  • Pre-K admissions is not first come, first served. All applications submitted by the April 7 deadline will be treated the same.

  • Learn more about pre-K admissions on our website. While you’re here, watch our video playlist: we’ll walk you through the pre-K admissions process.

You can apply to pre-K one of two ways:

  • Online with MySchools. This option is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in English, Arabic, Bangla, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.

  • By phone at 718-935-2009. Call us Monday through Friday, 8am – 6pm. Language supports are available by phone in more than 200 languages.
