3s Families

Please note that our 3s application deadline has passed. To be considered for our waitlist, please complete the application and we will contact you if there are openings in our 3s class.

UPK Families

To be considered for our UPK program program, families must complete the MySchools application through the DOE (see below). We also ask that UPK families complete our application (link above) so that we can get to know you better. There is no application fee for UPK families.


Early Bird - $50 Fee: Sun, December 20, 2020

Regular - $70 Fee: Sun, January 10, 2021


*Application deadlines are for children turning 3 in 2021 only. No priority is given to families who apply by the Early Bird deadline. The only difference is the application fee.


Admission decisions for 3s families will be communicated by January 24, 2021. 


All children turning 4 years old in 2021 are eligible to apply for our Pre-K For All program through a grant from the NYC Department of Education (NYCDOE). Families interested in Pre-K for All must apply through the NYC DOE MySchools website. Application deadlines for Pre-K For All are set by the NYCDOE. Please check their website for updates.


We ask that Pre-K For All families also complete the Chickpeas application to give us a better sense of who they are and why they want to attend a cooperative preschool. There is no application fee for families applying for Pre-K For All.
