Happy 2017 parents of 4 and 5 year-olds! It's time to apply to school.

Kindergarten applications for children turning 5-years-old this year are due on Friday, Jan. 13. Pre-kindergarten applications for fall 2017 are due by Feb. 24. Let us help you get informed and ready. Sign up for our free Jan. 11 workshop here.

Join Clara Hemphill and the staff of InsideSchools as we release our new book, New York City's Best Public Pre-K and Elementary Schools. We'll highlight some undiscovered gems and walk you through the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten application process.

We'll tackle these topics and more:

• What's the difference between childcare and pre-kindergarten?
• What should I look for when I visit?
• What about gifted, charters and other options?
• How and when do I apply?

The one-hour presentation will be followed by a Q & A period. Children are welcome but childcare will not be provided.

The event is free. Purchasing a $20 ticket includes a copy of our new book: New York City's Best Public Pre-K and Elementary Schools, 4th Edition. The guide is based on visits by the InsideSchools staff to more than 150 public schools in all five boroughs.

InsideSchools is partnering with Bowery Babes to offer this workshop.
