City launches plan to bring free, full-day, high-quality early childhood education to every three-year-old.
Building on the success of Pre-K for All, Mayor Bill de Blasio recently announced 3-K for All, which will provide universal, free, full-day, high-quality early childhood education for every three-year-old child regardless of family income. The program will begin in fall 2017 at two school districts, District 7 in the South Bronx and District 23 in Brownsville, serving 11,000 three-year-olds. In 2020, 3-K for All will expand to at least six more school districts and—with support from the State and federal governments—will continue to be expanded until the program is Citywide. Both 3-K for All and Pre-K for All are part of the City’s efforts to create high-quality early care and education programs for New Yorkers from birth to five years old.
