CHILD CARE OPTIONS
As the New York City Department of Education resumes in-person schooling this fall, most schools and early childhood programs will operate on a blended learning model.
This means that each week, students will have some school days in person, and some school days remotely. Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade on days when they are scheduled for remote learning. If you are interested in the Learning Bridges program, please complete the Interest Survey below.
The Learning Bridges programs will:
Be operated by community-based organizations and other partners
Provide opportunities for children to connect to their remote learning activities
Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities
Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools
You can complete the survey below even if you do not yet know your child’s school schedule. The survey is meant to assess interest; this is not a formal application. More information will be shared by the Department of Education (children in 3-K and pre-K) or the Department of Youth & Community Development (children in grades K-8) about a potential placement in the coming weeks. Programs will become available on a rolling basis beginning at the start of school.
You can also call 311 for support in completing the survey.
