Few New York City schools offer the same quality of care combined with an all-day preschool curriculum. Applications are accepted and tours are offered as long as space is available. You must complete an application and submit the fee the year prior to admittance. Once your application is received, a tour will be arranged for parents only. Acceptance letters are sent out in early March. Please feel free to call the C.A.D.S. office with any questions or concerns at 212-752-4566.


The ENP offers families the option of early decision for new applicants who are siblings of current or past C.A.D.S. students, or those born to C.A.D.S. alumni. In addition, any family with an existing relationship with Children’s All Day School families may be eligible for the ENP and should inquire with our office.
