NEW YORK — A survey of New York City pre-kindergarten families has found that nine out of 10 parents like the program.
According to the survey released Wednesday, 92 percent of families rated their child’s pre-K program as good or excellent.
Eighty-three percent said their child learned “a lot” in pre-K.
The survey of 1,100 families was done by the firm Westat Research between March and May of last year.
It’s part of a series of polls and surveys being done at a cost of $2 million.
Universal pre-K was Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio’s signature issue when he ran for mayor in 2013.
More than 68,000 children are enrolled in pre-K this year.
The city has extended the pre-K application deadline for fall 2016 from March 4 to March 9.
