New York City Department Of Education: Kindergarten Admissions Period Thru March 2, 2012

January 9 – March 2, 2012:   NYC Public School Kindergarten admissions period for children born in 2007
The Department of Education suggests that during the kindergarten admissions period parents should visit their zoned school and any other school(s) of interest for which they are eligible to fill out an application.   

When applying, make sure to bring:

  • child's birth certificate or passport, and
  • two documents which provide proof of residence.

A list of acceptable documents for this purpose can be found on the Department of Education website.

All applications received by the deadline of March 2, 2012 will be treated the same.  The Department of Education stresses that the proces is NOT first-come, first-served.
