Preschool Details: The Bloomingdale Family Program's mission is to serve preschool children from low-income families in upper Manhattan. Our educational program fosters children's growth in all areas of development — intellectual, physical, and emotional - and builds a foundation for success as they begin their educational journey. We welcome children with special needs and provide the individual support services they need to become competent and successful learners. Parents are our partners in the educational process. At Bloomingdale they gain experience to become advocates for their children and to reach toward their own aspirations. The Bloomingdale Family Program is committed to maintaining its outreach as a model in early childhood and parent education. In keeping with more than fifty years of service, we continue to explore and strive to meet the evolving needs of our community.
Eligible Requirements: Bloomingdale's classrooms accept children between the ages of two-and-nine-months and three-and-nine months as of September 1. To be eligible for Head Start, family income must fall within federal guidelines. Ten percent of our families may be above these income guidelines. We welcome children with special needs and children in foster care. We give preference to former parents, to single-parent families, and to families in stress. Some families are referred to us by ACS Protection/Prevention Services. 

Age Requirements: 2.9 to 3.9 years old
How to Apply: Come In: Bring your child to any of our three sites, from Monday through Thursday, between 9 AM and 3 PM.

Enrollment: Families are notified in June about September enrollment. Children may be enrolled throughout the year if space is available.
