The City School District of New Rochelle, in partnership with several community agencies, is offering residents pre-kindergarten options for the 2022-2023 school year.

 Entry for a pre-kindergarten lottery seat will be made available on Jan. 11. Families will have until Jan. 28 to enter and rank their preferences for programs and locations. Parents may choose from Universal Pre-Kindergarten or Magnet Pre-Kindergarten. 

 Entries will be processed during the first week of February, and every effort will be made to accommodate families’ choices. Families then will be notified about next steps, including how to navigate the school registration process.

 Those interested in learning more are encouraged to join a Pre-Kindergarten Open House on Jan. 11.
