The PSC is proud to have supported Mayor de Blasio’s hard-fought UPK campaign, which won $300 million in State funding for all-day universal pre-K in New York City. It’s an investment that will set the next generation of NYC children on a path toward success, and a huge relief for the thousands of CUNY faculty and staff who are parents of young children. Like the PSC’s successful campaign to negotiate a permanent paid parental leave benefit for CUNY faculty and staff, UPK will give the union’s members the support they need to thrive at CUNY. But you have to register immediately!
If you live in New York City and your child is turning 4 years old in 2014, it’s time to think about applying to pre-kindergarten! The application deadline is Wednesday, April 23. Here’s a link to the enrollment page, and here’s the announcement from the Mayor’s office.
