If your child was born in 2011, it's time to be thinking about kindergarten for 2016. You may apply online, on the phone or in person at a Department of Education Family Welcome Center between Dec. 7-Jan. 15.
If you're wondering where to start, Insideschools can help. We're offering a workshop for parents of rising kindergartners.
Join Clara Hemphill and the staff of Insideschools as we help you navigate the kindergarten admissions process.
We'll tackle these questions and more:
- What should I look for in a school?
- What's the difference between progressive vs. traditional?
- How do I know if the school is right for my child?
- What if my local school doesn't offer tours and open houses?
- What about gifted programs, charters and other options?
- My child has special needs. What do I need to know?
We'll offer a short presentation and then open it up for a Q&A session to answer all your questions.
Register here! The workshop will be held at The New School in Manhattan.
Se habla español. Spanish translation will be available.
