New Haven public schools free pre-K (age 3-4)

Classes are based at local New Haven public elementary schools, run by trained and certified teachers from 7:30am to 5:30pm.  Both neighborhood and magnet schools offer Pre-K programs, although Magnets are free (neighborhood Pre-Ks have a sliding scale) and give preferential enrollment to Kindergarten.  No wonder everyone wants a magnet school!  View the magnet application here.

Private/Independent Preschools

Some private preschools are School Readiness sites which means that they have some spots reserved by the city for low income families and they allow pre-registration for New Haven neighborhood schools (essential if you want one of the few Hooker school kindergarten spots.)  Here is the NH School Readiness sites 2012-13 list.
