child in preschool


Dear Parents,

Thank you for your interest in the York Avenue Preschool. The following are instructions for applying online.

  • Applications will be available starting in August 2021 for the 2022-2023 school year. 
  • The application must be completed at the time of request and a $125 fee will be collected by credit card when you submit the application.
  • To complete the application, a family photo and a copy of your child's birth certificate must be sent to the admissions office. Please include a brief note sharing your thoughts about your child. 
  • In lieu of the in-person child playgroup, we ask parents to send a short, current video clip of their child (approximately three minutes).  You are welcome to combine multiple shorter videos into one submission.  These clips should be representative of your child and his or her interests. Some suggestions are your child playing on their own or engaging with another child or adult, outdoor time, drawing or painting. If possible, we would like to observe some language. 
  • If applying for financial aid, please note that there is a separate application that can be found at https://sssandtadsfa.force.com/familyportal 
  • Once these items have been sent, please call the school at (212) 734-0922 or email, to confirm receipt.  
  • The application deadline is December 17th, 2021 for the 2022-2023 school year

Notifications will be emailed in accordance with ISAAGNY guidelines. 

*Parents of siblings are not required to tour the school. However, it is necessary to submit a video clip.
