The Deadline to Apply for More Than 4,000 Remaining Vacancies is Friday, January 29, 2010.
The Department of Education today urged parents to sign-up their children for free universal pre-Kindergarten (UPK) seats before the Friday, January 29 deadline. More than 4,000 UPK seats remain open at public schools, child care centers contracted by the Administration for Children’s Services, and community-based organizations across the five boroughs. All children who turned four years old between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009, are eligible for UPK. Programs can be half-day (two and a half hours, AM or PM) or full-day (six hours and twenty minutes).
