Preschool Admissions

Parents League School Advisors are here for you whether you are new to the city or have lived here your whole life. They have the expertise to help you find the right preschool for your child.

Begin the process by following these simple steps:

  1. Join Parents League.
    Sign up for membership online or contact our office at [email protected]
  2. Attend a Parents League Preschool Workshop (included with membership).
    Led by one of our experienced School Advisors, this interactive workshop is offered virtually during the spring and summer. The workshop will give you the opportunity to learn about the process and have all your questions answered. See our events page for preschool workshop dates.
  3. Develop your list of schools, and then call one of our preschool advisors to review your list. (included with membership)
  4. Request and file applications in September. Stay in touch with your School Advisor as you go through the process. (unlimited calls with a School Advisor included in your membership)
