After six years as the NY Gifted Education Examiner and Kindergarten Exmissions Consultant at River Park Nursery School, I am finally heeding all those who urged me, "You should write a book," and I am... writing a book. (That isn't about soaps, or figure-skating or romance, that is.)

"Getting Into NYC Kindergarten (September 2016)" is scheduled to be released this May. (Yes, that's almost a full year and a half before your child would enter Kindergarten, but that's how early you need to begin prepping for the process. See bottom of the post for a schedule of workshops to get you started.)

The book will cover:

* Public School/General Ed (zoned and unzoned)
* Public School Gifted & Talented (District & Citywide)
* Public School Dual Language
* Public School Magnet Programs
* Charter Schools
* Hunter College Elementary School
* Private Schools (Independent and Religious)
* Test Prep (Hunter, G&T & private school)
* Insider Application Tips
* Working the Waitlist
* Application Timeline & much, much more!

No other book like it currently exists. There are books on NYC's top public and private schools, books on applying to private school, and books on how to prep your child for a variety of entrance exams. But "Getting Into NYC Kindergarten (September 2016)" will be the first to cover everything in one. And because it's electronic, it features links to dozens of sites, articles and reports for you to learn more about each topic. Plus, as the NYC Department of Education is notorious for changing rules and requirements on a whim (sometimes smack-dab in the middle of the application season), "Getting Into NYC Kindergarten (September 2016)" can be instantly updated, unlike a print book, which is often out of date the moment it hits the shelves.

"Getting Into NYC Kindergarten (September 2016)" is a book for every New York City parent. It lists and explains your options, then offers an insider's guide for how to get what you want.

Ready to dive in? I'll be giving two "Getting Into NYC Kindergarten" workshops in May:

* Thursday, May 14, 2015 at River Park Nursery School on the Upper West Side

* Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at Evolution Enrichment in Chinatown
