How do I get an application?
Applications are available ONLINE ONLY the day after Labor Day beginning at 8:00 am. We do not acknowledge email or phone requests.

When can I tour the school?
School tours are given once an application has been submitted and completed. You must call to schedule your tour.

How do I schedule a child visit?
A school tour is just for the prospective parents. At the end of the tour, parents can schedule a playgroup for their child. The playgroup is approximately a half hour and one parent must attend.

What age can my child start preschool?
The youngest age that the preschool offers enrollment is 2 years for the Young Twos class.

Does my child have to be potty trained to start school?
Our Three and Four year old students do need to be toilet trained by September of the year they start.

How is separation handled?
In the Twos, it is a gentle process. The class schedule is abbreviated while the children get comfortable in their new environment. Parents are encouraged to take the child's lead until separation is complete. Each child separates differently, so we encourage flexibility.

The Threes have a shortened first day and then a full schedule begins.

Following Four's/Pre-K, what schools do the students attend?
Our students attend some of the finest private schools in the city. Please visit our page, Next Steps, to see a complete list. Also, many of our students attend the Board of Education Gifted and Talented (G&T) programs, CUNY Hunter College G&T program as well as neighborhood schools.

Is Financial Aid available?
Yes. The financial aid program is need-based and must be applied for each year.
