What if I applied in Round 1?

If you already submitted an application in Round 1: we encourage you to wait until after you receive your Round 1 offer on April 20th before deciding whether to apply to Round 2.

  • If you applied in Round 1 and, after receiving your offer letter on April 20th, you wish to reserve the seat you are offered, your offer letter will include instructions on how to pre-register by the deadline of Tuesday, May 9.
  • If you applied in Round 1 and, after receiving your offer letter on April 20th wish to submit another application request in Round 2, you will still have plenty of time to so! Pre-K applications are not first-come first-served and will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on May 9th. You may submit a Round 2 pre-K application regardless of whether or not you applied or accepted an offer during Round 1.
  • If you have any questions about submitting your application, please review the Pre-K Directory or call 718-935-2009.
