Kindergarten Admissions

In New York City, children enter kindergarten in the fall of the calendar year they turn five, and are guaranteed a kindergarten seat at a public school. Once your child starts kindergarten, they can remain at the same school until its final elementary grade. 

Kindergarten offers for the 2022-2023 school year are now available! For families who applied by the deadline, please visit the NYC DOE kindergarten enrollment page

Please reach out to esenrollment@schools.nyc.gov with questions.
