State's largest pre-K for disabled opens in the BX

The state's largest pre-kindergarten school for the disabled opened Wednesday in the Bronx.

The Bronx Early Learning Center on Bathgate Avenue will cater to 250 children, ages 3 to 5. Their disabilities will vary greatly, but officials say the goal is the same: to prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.

The organization Volunteers of America held a ribbon cutting Wednesday at the event. The group is behind construction of the center and staffing.

To watch an interview with the principal of the Bronx Early Learning Center, go to Channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select iO Extra.
