NEW YORK CITY (TIP): To apply to free, full-day, high quality pre-K seats, families should go to the upgraded pre-K search tool, which is now available in ten languages.

Families can filter their options by looking for district schools, charter schools or Early Education Centers at Families may also visit their Family Welcome Centers (see addresses below) or they can call 718.935.2067. In addition, 311 operators are available 24 hours for assistance.

Families that have already accepted their pre-K offer by pre-registering for their free, full-day, high-quality pre-K seat don’t need to take any further action.

Here is a quote you can use from Chancellor Fariña:  “Our efforts to work with every family one-on-one to find the right pre-K program for their child continues this summer. Families who have not yet applied and want a seat for their child should register as soon as possible. Through this additional year of learning, children will explore with science projects, learn new vocabulary words, develop social skills and bring their families into the classroom as partners.”
