Thank you for your interest in Chickpeas. Below is important information about our application process.
Due to COVID-19, this year's Open Houses will be held virtually on Zoom. We strongly encourage families to attend one of our Open Houses to learn about our program and hear from our amazing teachers and current families about what makes Chickpeas a great place for your child.
Zoom meeting details will be sent to all registered families prior to each open house.
Our 2021-2022 Application will be available soon!
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.
PRE-K FOR ALL
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.
