3K for All and PreK for All

Our 3K for All and PreK for All full-day programs provide excellence in early childhood education at no cost to you.

Through high-quality learning opportunities in a nurturing environment, our 3- and 4-year-olds develop language, reasoning, academic and social/emotional skills through classroom experiences, play, and positive relationships. Because we strongly believe that families and educators work as a team to help every child reach his/her full potential, we strive to include parents and extended family members in classroom activities throughout the year. 

You can register your child for 3K for All or PreK for All through MySchools.nyc in the spring of the year your child turns 3 (3K for All) or 4 (PreK for All). You must be a NYC resident.

Create your account on MySchools.nyc and then put QAGR as your first choice for ST. STANISLAUS KOSTKA CATHOLIC ACADEMY OF QUEENS.

This MySchools’ video tutorial will walk you through the process.
