Online registration opens for Members on March 5th. Registrations received online between March 5th and May 31st will be accepted in the order received. When a class is filled, additional reservations for that class at that time will be placed on a waitlist or offered other appropriate available classes. Thus, an early online reservation is the best way to ensure your child gets the class of their choice.  

Registrations received after May 31st will be charged a $50 late fee per registration. These registrations are not guaranteed and will only be confirmed if space is available in classes.  Please make every effort to register online as soon as you know your plans and certainly well before June 1st.

Members must log in to the NYC website in order to access the online registration.
