CHANCELLOR FARIÑA ANNOUNCES OPENING OF PRE-K APPLICATIONS

Featured

All Families with Children Born in 2012 Can Apply Starting Today, Online at nyc.gov/prek, Over the Phone, or In Person at a Family Welcome Center 

Applications Open a Month Earlier Than Last Year – Giving Families More Opportunities to Find the Right Program

NEW YORK – Chancellor Carmen Fariña visited Bambi Day Care Center in Brooklyn today to announce the opening of 2016-17 Pre-K for All applications. All New York City families with children born in 2012 are eligible to apply starting today, and the first round of applications closes March 4. There are enough free, full-day, high-quality seats to meet the demand of every four-year old in New York City, and this year, a record 68,500 students enrolled in free, full-day, high quality pre-K. To make the enrollment process even easier, the Department of Education has moved up the application timeline. Families are now able to apply a month earlier than last year and will receive offer letters a month sooner.

“Pre-K is critical year where students learn new vocabulary, experiment with science and make new friends. I’m proud that we have enough full-day seats for every four-year old in New York City. We are putting more students on the path to success than ever before. I urge all families with four-year olds to go online, call or visit a Family Welcome Center to apply,” said Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña.

“Children in full-day pre-K develop the skills they need to be successful not just in kindergarten, but for the rest of their academic career,” said Deputy Chancellor for Strategy and Policy Josh Wallack. “Families should know that all our programs are held to the same high standards and that quality is our most important priority. I encourage all families to review the directory, visit pre-K programs and apply to the programs that best meets their needs and the needs of their student.”

All New York City families with children born in 2012 are eligible to apply to pre-K for the 2016-17 school year. This includes children with disabilities and children whose home language is not English.Families can complete the single application process online at nyc.gov/prek, over the phone at 718-935-2067, or in person at a Family Welcome Center. The single application allows families to list up to 12 full-day pre-K programs – including DOE district schools and DOE-run Pre-K Centers and NYC Early Education Centers (NYCEECs) – ranking programs of interest in order of preference. The online application is translated into all nine of the DOE’s languages, and families can submit an application over the phone or in person in over 200 languages. Families interested in half-day, 5-hour NYCEEC pre-K programs or charter school pre-K programs should contact those programs directly to apply.

The DOE has also continued to identify a variety of language supports offered at certain programs. Twenty-seven pre-K programs have been designated as Dual Language (DL) and nearly 200 pre-K programs are designated as Enhanced Language Support (ELS).

The earlier application process will give families more time to prepare for the transition to pre-K, and allow pre-K programs to pre-register students and make waitlist offers before the end of the school year. A second round of applications will begin the first week of May and will feature any newly awarded Fall 2016 pre-K programs; families will be able to explore new options and apply to more programs of interest.

To guide families through the application process, the DOE will host information sessions in every borough between January 27 and February 3. Details and times below:
