How to Apply
For the 2021-2022 School Year, Bloomingdale is not offering Head Start Classrooms. We are now a 3K and 4K program under the New York City Department of Education. Information on applying
Bloomingdale’s classrooms serve children who are 3 and 4 years old.
Families are notified in June about September enrollment. Children may be enrolled throughout the year if space is available. Once your child is accepted into the program, staff will contact you to provide information and answer your questions.
Beginning with your child’s enrollment in the program, your family becomes part of our extended Bloomingdale family. Family partnership brings teachers, staff, and parents together in a relationship of mutual respect and trust. We will work together to provide the best possible program for your child. We will invite you to become involved in Parent Committees, take part in parent workshops, and contribute your skills and ideas to the program. We will help you obtain services and educational and job opportunities. Our partnership continues after your child has graduated from the program. Whether to ask for support or just to stay in touch, alumni parents and children always remain part of the Bloomingdale family.
