Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, Chickpeas will offer free full day 3-K and Pre-K for All, through a contract with the NYC Department of Education. Children are eligible for 3-K if they turn 3 by December 31st of the school year, and for Pre-K for All if they turn 4 by December 31st of the school year. All 3-K and Pre-K for All students must attend school 5 days per week. Chickpeas charges no tuition or fees for 3-K and 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.

The school day runs from 9 am - 3:20 pm.


Chickpeas offers both early drop-off, from 8-9 am, and an after-school program, from 3:20 pm - 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The 2021-2022 after-school rate is $11.84/hour, however rates for the 2022-23 have not yet been determined.

Early drop-off and 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.

​*Please note: Each year, the final operating budget for the following year is proposed by the outgoing board, but is not formally adopted until the new board comes on in September. The rates listed above are subject to change.
