Chickpeas currently offers free full day Pre-K for All, through a contract with the NYC Department of Education. Children are eligible for Pre-K for All if they turn 4 by December 31st of the school year. All Pre-K for All students must attend school 5 days per week. Chickpeas charges no tuition or fees for Pre-K for All students during the regular school day, but hourly fees apply for our optional after-school program, as well as our July session.


Chickpeas offers a flexible after-school program, which runs from 3:20 pm - 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. Parents can decide when to pick up their children as late as the morning of drop off. 2021-2022 after-school rate is $11.84/hour.

After-school hours are invoiced monthly based on usage.



A one-time materials fee of $400 is charged at the beginning of each school year.
