Attention Parents of NYC Preschool students: 21,440 new spots will open up for Fall, 2014 now that De Blasio got $300 million in funding for free kindergarten Classes in NYC. 20,000 more seats will open up in 2015. Here is the note I received about it. Be sure to check out those links if you are looking for pre-K in the City!
We are happy to announce that new full-day, public school pre-kindergarten (pre-k) programs will be available this September! For a list of these new full-day options, please see our Pre-K Expansion Guide, which is available on the pre-k website or at an Enrollment Office next week.
The deadline to submit your public school pre-k application is Wednesday, April 23. If you already submitted an application and want to apply for one of these new programs, you can update your program choices through your online application account or by submitting a new paper application at an Enrollment Office.
If you have any questions, please contact ES_Enrollment@schools.nyc.gov or visit our pre-k website. You can also find translated versions of Pre-K Admissions resources on the following pages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Urdu.
We look forward to supporting you through this exciting process!
