Dear Parents,

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

  • Applications will be available starting at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 8th, 2020 for the 2021-2022 school year. Applications are limited.
  • 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.
  • If applying for financial aid, please note that there is a separate application that can be found at www.mytads.com
  • Once these items have been sent, please call the school at (212) 734-0922 or email, to confirm receipt.  
  • Please note that there are separate tours for prospective Two's and Three's parents. Tours will be virtual and more information will be available after September 25th. 
  • In lieu of the in-person child playgroup, this year we will be asking parents to send a short, current video clip of their child (no more than 3 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.    

Notifications will be emailed in accordance with ISAAGNY guidelines on Thursday, February 25th, 2021 with a reply by date of Thursday, March 4th by 12 noon.

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