Dear Nursery Parents and Guardians,
This year, the Pre-K for All application process will be open from February 24 through April 7, 2021.
During the application period, families can apply one of two ways:
- Online with MySchools (Open external link). Apply online in English, Arabic, Bengali/Bangla, Chinese, Haitian Creole, French, Korean, Russian, Spanish, or Urdu.
- By phone at 718-935-2009. Interpretation services are available in more than 200 languages for over-the-phone applications. You can ask questions and request information about admissions in any language when you call.
- Our Program is listed as:
Roman Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Snows d/b/a Our Lady of the Snows School (26QADU)
If your child is currently enrolled at OLSCA, they have priority for our program. If you would like your child to remain here for Pre-K for All, be sure to list us on your application and indicate that your child is a current student.
If your child’s sibling attends OLS, list that on your application, they have a higher chance of getting an offer to our program. Sibling priority will only be granted in cases where either of the following applies: the applicant’s sibling attends the school now and will still be enrolled in September 2021 or the applicant’s sibling is pre-registered for September 2021.
All families who submit a Pre-K for All application by the deadline will get their Pre-K offer letter later in the spring. This letter will also tell you where your child is waitlisted.
Accept Your Offer
Secure your child’s seat by accepting your Pre-K offer by the deadline provided in your offer letter. We will work with you to register your child.
- Be sure to accept your offer.
- Then provide all required documents during registration. Use this checklist to learn what you need.
Our Pre-K for All program has a waitlist when there are more students that apply to the program than Pre-K seats available. If you wait to register your child, there is a possibility they will be put on a waitlist. If this happens it may take longer to find out if you will get a seat at OLSCA. We encourage you to register as soon as the enrollment period opens to avoid having to wait for a seat.
Once you receive your offer and accept it on your MYSCHOOLS account, we will contact you about submitting your registrations documents and paperwork that needs to be filled out. Please note that these requirements include updated immunizations and physical examinations. No registration will be completed until all required documents are submitted. You will be given specific instructions on how to submit once we contact you.
