Just a month after Santa was making his list and checking it twice, NYC parents are doing the same as we narrow down our Pre-K choices for the upcoming application period.
If your child was born in 2012 and you live in New York City, get ready to fill out an application. Application period begins January 25.
In free, full-day, high-quality pre-K, teachers are sparking wonder and igniting learning in our children. Pre-K For All gives children stronger math and reading skills in elementary school and a better chance at success in life. Studies show that early childhood education improves performance throughout a child’s school experience. In these high-quality programs, children develop and learn how to interact with others, share, wait their turns, and listen.
Pre-K For All runs five days per week from September to June. Most pre-K options are on a full-day schedule (6 hours and 20 minutes). Some 5-hour and half-day (2 hours and 30 minutes) options are also available.
