In New York City public schools, kindergarten students need to apply.  The application period usually begins the December before the kindergarten school year.  Check on the New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE) website for dates, or sign up for emails.  The DOE will send you information on when registration begins, deadlines, events and webinars related to the application process, and more.  

For any Kindergarten application questions, feel free to contact Ms. Fabienne Matteis by email or phone (718-263-9770, ext. 1141).
