Today was a historic day for New York City and a triumph for Children’s Aid. More than 50,000 four-year-old children are enrolled in pre-kindergarten programs that will play a critical foundation in their education and development. This is a huge step toward the goal of having every four-year-old in the city involved in a pre-K program. At Children’s Aid, we expanded the number of children in all pre-kindergarten education programs to nearly 1,200, twice the number we served in 2012-13. We were thrilled to see so many happy faces today, ready to learn and have a fabulous school year!
