Grants to New York City non-public schools, article 47 organizations, and other organizations with existing kindergarten programs to provide kindergarten programs for 5-year olds. Vendors must prequalify to apply. On January 5 a conference will be held; questions should be submitted 48 hours prior. January 8 is the deadline for questions not answered at the conference.
Eligible applicants are only high-quality early childhood education providers with existing kindergarten programs at the site being proposed for a new contract award for full-day services starting in the 2016-17 school year. Vendors with a continuing Pre-K for All contract need to apply if they are currently contracted for only half-day services at an existing site and intend to add full-day seats at that site, or will offer full-day services at a new location.
Providers must be able to provide at least 180 days of full-day Pre-K for All services, including at least 176 days of instruction and four (4) days of professional development for teachers. Providers must operate five (5) days (Monday to Friday) in a typical week, and provide a minimum of six (6) hours and twenty (20) minutes and a maximum of seven (7) hours of Pre-K for All services each day.
Providers may request approval from the DECE field offices to operate 6 days per week in a typical week (Monday through Friday and either Saturday or Sunday) and/or to operate for fewer than six (6) hours and twenty (20) minutes per day (but in no case will a provider receive approval to operate for fewer than five (5) hours per day).
Note that the DOE will fund only 6 hours and 20 minutes of Pre-K for All programming, and you are not permitted to charge families for any services provided during this time. Should you offer care or educational services outside of the 6 hours and 20 minutes of Pre-K for All, the DOE will not fund those hours, and you may charge families for services provided at those times.
July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2019 At the DOE’s discretion, the contract may be extended for two (2) additional one-year periods or one (1) additional period of two (2) years.
