P.S. 209  PARENT NEWSLETTER


PRE-K APPLICATION IS OPEN-

Children born in 2011 who turn four years old by December 31, 2015 are eligible for free, high quality, full day, pre-Kindergarten in district schools and New York City Early Childhood Centers.  We will now be referring to programs that contract with the NYCDOE or ACS to offer pre-K as “New York City Early Education Centers” (NYCEECs), rather than “Community-Based Early Childhood Centers” (CBECCs). After extensive conversations with programs, families, community stakeholders, and educators, we are confident that the new name will more effectively support our joint efforts to create an integrated P-12 system

 

Pre-K for All is an opportunity to prepare every child for a lifetime of learning. In pre-K, children will develop skills, knowledge, and approaches to learning needed to succeed. Pre-K is a critical and irreplaceable academic foundation that offers long-term benefits that will help every child thrive in school, at home, and in life. Studies have shown that children who attend a high-quality pre-K attain higher levels of education and receive higher incomes as adults. Pre-K can serve as the launching pad to lifelong success.
