After Debuting in Districts 7 & 23; 3-K is Available in Districts 4, 5, 16, and 27 in 2018–19

Next year’s incoming 3-K class will be almost four times larger than this year’s class.

Applied for New York’s 3-K for All programs by the DOE’s deadline on May 11?

Starting today, families who participated in NYC’s second annual 3-K Admissions process are receiving seat offers for free, full-day, high quality 3-K classes that begin in fall 2018.

Next year, there will be over 5,000 students attending 3-K programs this fall, up from over 1,500 students during the 3-K program’s first year (2017–18). In addition, for the first time, all families who applied for 3-K from Districts 7 and 23 will be able to attend a 3-K program this fall.

“Four times more 3-K offers means four times as many children who will get a critical start to their education, but it’s clear that we need more seats,” said Chancellor Richard A. Carranza about today’s seat offers. “The research is clear—high-quality 3-K and pre-k are the foundation of our students’ long-term academic success—and parents want their children to benefit. I hope we will receive more support from our State and federal partners to meet City families’ demand for free, full-day, high-quality early childhood education.”

Throughout the summer, DOE outreach specialists will work with families who received 3-K offers. Families that do not receive a 3-K offer in the coming days will receive information about enrolling in other 3-K and EarlyLearn programs in their neighborhood.

Families who have questions about the City’s 3-K programs should visit our 3-K website, call (718) 935-2009, or stop by one of our Family Welcome Centers for assistance.
