Learning Bridges: Information & Overview

Free Child Care Option for Students Enrolled in Blended Learning


On behalf of The Office of Community Schools,
NYCDOE The Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD)

The DOE and the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) are collaborating to launch Learning Bridges – a new program that will provide free child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on days when they are scheduled for remote learning.

Students must be enrolled in blended learning/hybrid schedules to qualify for this program. (100% remote students are NOT eligible)

The program will be available when in-person classes start, and all students at our school who are enrolled in blended learning are eligible and encouraged to apply. Our site location is hosted by University Settlement Society of New York, located at 611 East 13th Street, one block north of our school building.

See flyer for more information in multiple languages HERE.
