Message from the office of City Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez:
Welcome to Kindergarten Admissions! If you live in New York City and your child is turning five years old in 2014, your child is eligible to attend kindergarten in September 2014.
Beginning January 13, families can submit a 2014-2015 kindergarten application in one of three ways: online, over the phone by calling 718-935-2400, or in person at an Enrollment Office. Admission is not first-come, first-served. All applications received by the February 14 deadline will be treated the same.
We want to share several resources that will be available to help you support families. All of these resources are available on our translated Enrollment pages (Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Urdu) and in English on our Kindergarten Admissions website.
- An informational video on applying to kindergarten (available in 11 languages)
- Elementary School Directories
- Step-by-step instructions detailing how to submit an application online using Kindergarten Connect
- A flyer with key dates and information on how to submit an application
All families are invited to attend an information session where they can learn about kindergarten admissions for the 2014-2015 school year.
