De Blasio Announces Plan To Extend Pre-K To 3-year-olds


Mayor de Blasio doubled down on one of his administration’s signature issues — universal pre-k for 4-year-olds – announcing plans to expand the full-day program to 3-year-olds by September 2021.

The program will be piloted in two districts in the coming school year — one in the south Bronx and one in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn — at a cost of $36 million.

When fully implemented, the program will cost $877 million a year.

“It’s time to reach children earlier…because we know if we reach them even earlier we will have a much greater impact,” de Blasio said at PS 1 in The Bronx. Read more at NYPost.
