What to look for in a pre-k
Pre-kindergarten is rapidly expanding in New York City as the mayor opens new seats. Every child is eligible to attend free pre-k the year he or she turns four. While the number of programs has increased dramatically since 2014, demand still exceeds the supply of seats in some neighborhoods. You may have to travel to find a spot for your child. The city is housing pre-kindergarten classes in a variety of places including public schools, religious schools, private nursery schools, child care centers and settlement houses.
