Artwork

Each year it gives us great pleasure to welcome new families into our community.
We hope the following guidelines will help when you begin the application process in the Fall for 2018-2019 Admissions.

Eligibility

Your child must be two by June 1, 2018 in order to apply for our entry level Twos/Threes Class beginning in September 2018.

Applications

Our online application for the 2018-2019 school year will be available as of Tuesday, September 5th 2017. The deadline for applications is November 1st, 2017.

Open Houses

Open Houses offer an opportunity to see the facility and to hear Jean Rosenberg, Founding Director, articulate the School's Mission and Program. It is recommended that parents attend and may do so without having submitted an application.


The Open Houses are for parents only. Due to our limited space and the number of people who would like to see the school at this time, we require you to make a reservation for one of our Open Houses. We hope you can attend. Our Open Houses will be held on:

  • Thursday, October 19th, 2017 @ 6:30pm
  • Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 @ 6:30pm

Please rsvp with your preferred date to admissions@chelseadayschool.org

Lottery

We would like to meet every family that applies to Chelsea Day School but because of the number of applications we receive, we hold a lottery. The lottery will determine the families who will continue on in the application process.

If your application is drawn in the lottery you will be notified of the date and time of your family meeting. Family meetings will be held in November 2017 thru February 2018. Letters of notification will be mailed in February 2018 in accordance with dates set by the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York, (ISAAGNY).

If your application is not drawn in the lottery, your application fee will be returned to you..

Thank you for your interest in Chelsea Day School.
