Hollingworth Preschool



There are 17 or 18 places to be filled in the morning class (3s and 4s) for children. All applicants for the morning class must be at least three years old by August 31st of the academic year. The number of spaces available in the afternoon class (4s and 5s) for children cannot be determined at this time. Although it is likely that many of this year's morning class will attend the afternoon class during the 2016-2017 school year, we anticipate that places will become available for new children. All applicants for the afternoon class must be at least four years old by August 31st of the academic year. If your child's birthday falls within days of the cut off, you are welcome to telephone us regarding the advisability of applying.

Application Process

The application process consists of four phases:the submission of the application green sheet,the individual activities session, responses to the observational questions, and the small group observational session. Utilizing the information gathered in these complementary phases of the application process, the admissions committee will select students for the Hollingworth Preschool.

The application cycle begins the fall of the year before the child is eligible to attend. Please contact the Preschool Office at (212) 678-3403 or send an email to to request an application.
