Thank you for your interest in Chickpeas. Below is important information about our application process.


As of April 2022, Chickpeas is now funded for both 3 and 4 year olds through a grant from the NYC Department of Education (NYCDOE). For the 2022-23 school year, children born in 2019 are eligible for 3-K, and children born in 2018 are eligible for Pre-K for All.


All families interested in 3-K or Pre-K must must apply through the NYCDOE MySchools website. Application deadlines for 3-K and Pre-K For All are set by the NYCDOE. Please check their website for updates.

Chickpeas does not make admissions decisions for our open 3K and PreK for All spots.

Should your family be placed with Chickpeas, we will invite you to complete the Chickpeas intake form. There is no application fee for families applying for 3-K or Pre-K For All.
