Welcome Parents
Welcome to the NYC Department of Education's online application website.

3-K FOR ALL The 3-K Application Period is now open! The path to 3-K for All begins this fall in School Districts 7 (South Bronx) and 23 (Brownsville, East New York, Ocean Hill) for children born in 2014. We will continue the expansion with six additional districts by the fall of 2020, for a total of eight districts. Our goal is to bring 3-K to every community school district in New York City.

Families who live in Districts 7 and 23 will receive priority for entry into most 3-K programs in their district, but every family in New York City is free to apply. If you don't know your school district, please check http://schools.nyc.gov/SchoolSearch/.

The first round of 3-K application ends July 14 - apply now!
