NYC Department of Education Reopening Updates:
Click Here for updates of NYC DOE reopening updates.

In order to successfully fight COVID-19, our first responders, health care providers, transit workers, and other key personnel must be able to come to work. That is why DOE have created Regional Enrichment Centers—places where the children of these front-line workers can be safely cared for while their parents continue to serve the city in this time of need.


Staffed by DOE employees and community-based organization partners, the centers will provide children with three daily hot meals, remote learning time with their teachers, activities like art, music, and physical education, and social and emotional support.


Please call 311 or CLICK HERE to enroll your child in a Regional Enrichment Center.
