Mayor de Blasio Announces 100,000 Public School Children Will Receive Free Day Care

In order to make up for the gap left behind as the city announce that it would be moving towards a hybrid model public school program where in person instruction would be mixed with online learning, Mayor de Blasio today announced that the city would be opening up day care for 100,000 children of workers on the days that they are not receiving in person instruction.

The city will be using vast amounts of open spaces to run this programming including empty libraries and community centers.

The administration is still assessing how the order of priority will work for the program but based on initial comments from Melanie Hartzog, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, younger students will have first dibs at seats in the program. Director Hartzog also said that PPE including face-masks will be provided by the City and there will be a cap on 15 children in each room.
