Admissions Frequently Asked Questions

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • What is your birthday cut-off date?

    The birthday cut-off date for our 2s and 3s Groups is August 1. For all other Groups, our birthday cut-off date is October 1. Children must be the age of the Group that they would enter by the cut-off date. For example, a child entering the 3s would need to be three years old on or before August 1.
  • What is the typical group size?

    2s Groups have 10 children; 3s have approximately 14. 4s and older usually have 16-18 children in each Group.
  • What kind of child is well suited for City and Country?

    Given our emphasis on both independent and group problem solving, children with solid language and social skills thrive at C&C. Children who rely heavily on repetitive teacher direction or who are challenged by a significant social-relatedness or language-processing difficulty may find our program too challenging.
  • Do certain applicants receive special priority?

    Yes, sibling and legacy applicants are given priority and are eligible for Early Notification. Although sibling and legacy applicants are not guaranteed admission, it is our goal to admit them if possible.
  • Does my child need to be vaccinated?

    In the interest of public health and safety, and in conjunction with the New York State Department of Education, City and Country School requires all children to be vaccinated prior to admission. You may request a religious exemption to be reviewed (and possibly denied) by the Principal.
