Applying for 2020 - 2021
Click here for our application. Applications are accepted after Labor Day. Interested parents may call the school to speak to Patti or Fiona in the admissions office. Children must be at least 2.1 years of age by September of their first school year.
We recommend that you return your application promptly. Upon receipt of your application the admissions office will call you to schedule a parent tour and a visit for your child. We do insist on meeting both parents so please plan to attend the tour and/or accompany your child to the playgroup.
Park Children's Day School is a member of the Independent School Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY) and abides by the Association’s policy on informing parents of admission decisions. We email notifications to families at the end of February.
Tours and Playgroups
Small group tours are given daily at 9:30am and 10:30am and last approximately 45 minutes. Both parents are encouraged to attend.
Playgroups for the children take place in the afternoon and last approximately 30 minutes. Only one parent may accompany the child for this visit. Playgroups begin in late October. Applicants for the Fours and Fives will be seen in January and February based on availability of places.
The criteria for accepting children are: the parents’ belief in the philosophy of the education espoused by the school, suitability of the program for the individual child, and the need of the school to maintain a balance of age, sex and personality types. Siblings are given preference for placement.
