3-K is coming to north Brooklyn schools in the 2020-2021 school year.

At his 2020 State of the City address, Mayor de Blasio announced the expansion of his 3-K for All program to two additional school districts, bringing the total number to sixteen.

3-K already exists in the following school districts:

  • District 4 (East Harlem)
  • District 5 (Harlem)
  • District 6 (Washington Heights and Inwood)
  • District 7 (South Bronx)
  • District 8 (Country Club, Pelham Bay, Throgs Neck, Castle Hill, Soundview, Hunts Point)
  • District 9 (Grand Concourse, Highbridge, Morrisania)
  • District 16 (Bedford-Stuyvesant)
  • District 19 (East New York)
  • District 23 (Brownsville)
  • District 27 (Broad Channel, Howard Beach, Ozone Park, Rockaways)
  • District 31 (Staten Island)
  • District 32 (Bushwick)

In the fall of 2021, 3-K will come to these four districts:

  • District 1 (Chinatown, East Village, Lower East Side)
  • District 12 (Central Bronx)
  • District 14 (Greenpoint, Williamsburg)
  • District 29 (Cambria Heights, Hollis, Laurelton, Queens Village, Springfield Gardens, St. Albans)

Through this expansion, the 3-K for All program will serve 26,000 children across the city. That includes all 3-year-olds served in Head Start and Child Care programs, which transferred from ACS to DOE management to create one single early childhood system for families.

The application for 3-K opened on Wednesday, February 5, and will remain open until Friday, April 24.
