NYCEEC Instructional Expectations

The New York City Department of Education (DOE) and the New York City Administration for Children's Services (ACS) have collaboratively developed Instructional Expectations for Universal Prekindergarten programs at New York City Early Education Centers.

These expectations:
  • Promote our citywide focus on school readiness
  • Build on Common Core, authentic assessment, and program quality guidelines
  • Align with K-12 instructional expectations
