Strengthening and Expanding Prekindergarten in the Children First Reorganization
Boressoff, Todd
Child Care, Inc.
This policy brief examines the infrastructure needed to support early education at the Department of Education in the coming years. The Department's newly announced reform agenda will reshape how prekindergarten is managed. It's goal is to help inform the decisions the City must make to integrate an expanding prekindergarten program into Children First. Broadly, to assure excellence New York needs to: (1) Establish a hub, or home base, for prekindergarten with expertise on all aspects of prekindergarten delivery, and to which community partners can connect; (2) Provide systems and structures to strengthen the City's existing partnership with community-based organizations and enhance linkages between these programs and public schools; (3) Continue to coordinate and align the Department of Education's fiscal, contract and administrative policies with its early education practice; and (4) Improve City-wide cross-agency collaboration through formal ongoing mechanisms designed to more effectively deploy public resources and achieve better outcomes for children.
