City gives free, full-day public preschool offers to more than 20,000 kids

Thousands of parents found out today whether their kids have been accepted to free preschool.



More than 20,000 seats are being filled in the city's new full-day pre-K programs, an initiative started earlier this year by Mayor Bill de Blasio. Parents who receive an offer to a public school pre-K program have until June 20 to register with the school.



Additional full-day public school seats will be announced in the coming weeks.
