New York City's leading neighborhood news source details schools by location and acceptance rate
NEW YORK, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents of 4-year-olds seeking one of NYC's coveted free pre-K seats have a new resource from DNAinfo.com New York. With an infographic summarizing acceptance rates for every public pre-K program in the city, parents can quickly identify which neighborhood programs to apply to this year.
"Some of the city's most popular pre-K programs turned away more than 95 percent of applicants in 2012," said Julie Shapiro, DNAinfo.com New York's NYC Kids Editor. "We want to inform parents about all of their neighborhood choices so their kids have the best chance possible of getting a seat this year."
Pre-K applications for this fall are due April 5, and allow families of children who turn four this year to rank up to 12 choices. Parents can apply to any pre-K program in the city but have the best chance of being admitted to their zoned school and schools in their district, or any school where they already have a child enrolled.
"No matter where you live in New York City, there aren't enough pre-K spots to go around," said Michael P. Ventura, managing editor of DNAinfo.com New York. "Our reporters spoke with parents and educators in every borough to uncover news ranging from expanded choices in Staten Island, overflow options in Brooklyn Heights and dual-language programs in Jackson Heights."
