Teach 3-K for All or Pre-K for All in New York City

Every student in New York City deserves the opportunity to acquire the foundation of skills, knowledge and approaches to learning needed to be ready for school and ultimately for, college and careers.

3-K for All and Pre-K for All believe that free, full-day, high-quality early childhood education lays a critical foundation for children to thrive in school and life. This investment in our youngest learners is an investment in the future of New York City.

As we head into our sixth school year of the historic Pre-K for All expansion, and the third school year of the 3-K for All initiative, the New York City Department of Education is seeking enthusiastic and effective teachers to staff early childhood classrooms for the 2019 – 20 school year.

With early childhood offered in over 1,800 programs and every neighborhood in NYC, you will be able to choose the environment that is the best fit for you as a teacher and aligns with your educational philosophy.
