July 1, 2015

harlem search school nyc1On June 29th, pre-K waitlists are opening today! The NYC Department of Education is trying to make it as easy as possible for every family from Harlem to Hollis to find a great program and register their child.

As you know, all families were automatically placed on the waitlists for any programs that they ranked higher on their application. Starting on the start date, pre-K programs will begin calling waitlist families as seats become available.

Families were automatically placed on the waitlists for any programs that they ranked higher on their application than the program where their child received an offer. Families do not need to contact pre-K programs where their child is already on the waitlist. They will be contacted directly if a seat becomes available for their child. If families would like to place their child on additional waitlists, they should contact the program immediatly. If a family already accepted their offer, it does not affect their eligibility to receive a waitlist offer, nor does it affect their ability to apply for a new program in the second application period (known as Round 2), which is open until July 10.

To apply to new, free, full-day, high quality pre-K seats, families should go to the upgraded pre-K search tool, which is available in ten languages. Families can filter their options by looking for district schools, charter schools or Early Education Centers at

Chancellor Fariña said,

Pre-K for All will offer free, full-day, high-quality pre-K to every four-year-old in New York City who wants a seat and families should register as soon as possible. Starting today, pre-K programs will be calling families as seats on waitlists become available and families can check in with programs during this process. Through this additional year of learning, children will explore with science projects, learn new vocabulary words, develop social skills and bring their parents into the classroom as partners. We will continue to work directly with families one-on-one to find the right program for their child.”
