With Pre-K For All, Opportunity Starts Now

In free, full-day, high-quality pre-K, teachers are sparking wonder and igniting learning in our children. Pre-K For All gives children stronger math and reading skills in elementary school and a better chance at success in life. Studies show that early childhood education improves performance throughout a child’s school experience. In these high-quality programs, children develop and learn how to interact with others, share, wait their turns, and listen.

Pre-K For All runs five days per week from September to June. Most pre-K options are on a full-day schedule (6 hours and 20 minutes). Some 5-hour and half-day (2 hours and 30 minutes) options are also available.

If your child was born in 2012 and you live in New York City, you can submit an application from January 25-March 4, 2016.

IDNYC is the new, free identification card for all New York City residents, which gives all of us the opportunity to show who we are—New Yorkers. As a government-issued photo identification card, IDNYC secures the peace of mind and access to City services that come from having recognized identification. IDNYC benefits every city resident, including the most vulnerable communities—the homeless, youth, the elderly, undocumented immigrants, the formerly incarcerated and others who may have difficulty obtaining other government-issued ID.


Notify NYC is the City of New York's official source for information about emergency events and important City services. Registration is free.
