New York Preschools, Public Schools, and Private Schools Guide

Preschool should be a breeze—you don't even have to know how to read! But in NYC it seems like you need a PhD to navigate the admissions process. The competitive atmosphere around getting into preschool creates a lot of unnecessary confusion and anxiety. We created this page in order to help New York City parents navigate the preschool process without all the hype and hysteria.

Start with our overview of preschool admissions, where we share our take on the real deal with the process. Then check out our posts with expert advice from preschool directors and admission dos and don'ts.

Tip: Search both where you work and where you live.
