Seek­ing to dou­ble down on an ef­fort — ex­pand­ing early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion — for which he has been widely praised, New York City Mayor Bill de Bla­sio an­nounced a plan on April 24, 2017, to of­fer free, full-day prekinder­garten to 3-year-olds. Two New York City pub­lic school dis­tricts — one in Brook­lyn, and the other in the Bronx — will of­fer free preschool for 3-year-old stu­dents next fall as part of a pi­lot pro­gram that will lay the ground­work to in­tro­duce free, full-day univer­sal pre-K for 3-year-olds – “3-K for All” – by 2021. The to­tal cost — nearly $900 mil­lion — will re­quire state and fed­eral fund­ing to the tune of $700 mil­lion.
