question / pregunta:

(Background to the question:) NYC has recently eliminated kindergarten by 125 NYC child care centers without increasing the number of kindergarten slots elsewhere. Originally the plan was to eliminate those slots entirely, but I have just learned that 93 of the 125 child care centers have had those slots reinstated, i.e. available to use for 3-4 year olds. Now my question: Do you know the names of the child care centers involved, specifically, which have not had their kindergarten slots reinstated? Also, how many kindergarten slots are available in NYC? How many are available through public school? How many through charter schools? I haven’t been able to find this information. Even the child care centers don’t have the info.
