DYCD Learning Lab Services
Learning Bridges is open to 3-K through 8th grade students enrolled in a DOE school or contracted early childhood program. This includes District 75, 4410 programs, 853 programs, contracted 3-K, Pre-K, and EarlyLearn programs, and DOE elementary and middle schools.
AND IT'S ALL FREE...
so how does it work?
Learning Bridges is designed to serve families in blended learning who need 5 days of care. As of January 2021, sites with available seats may enroll children enrolled in 100% remote learning if care is still needed. Priority for placement is given equally to:
Families in temporary housing, including shelters and hotels
Children of NYCDOE school and program staff, including staff of Learning Bridges sites and other contracted early childhood providers
Families residing in NYCHA developments
Children in family foster care or receiving other child welfare services
Students with disabilities
Children whose parent/guardian is an essential worker or was previously enrolled in a Regional Enrichment Center (REC)
Families will receive placement at the closest site within a reasonable distance that still has seats available.
