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 2022 for the 2023-2024 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. Videos can be sent to the admissions email or to our Gmail account yorkavenuepreschoolnyc@gmail.com
  • If applying for financial aid, please note that there is a separate application that can be found at  https://sssandtadsfa.force.com/familyportal/FamilyLogin This application will open in September. 
  • Once these items have been sent, please call the school at (212) 734-0922 or     email admissions@yorkavenuepreschool.org to confirm receipt.  
  • 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.
