NYC is offering free childcare for the children of essential workers and free hotel stays.
Regional Enrichment Centers – Child Care
The City is offering free childcare for the children of essential workers, with at least two sites in every school district, through its Regional Enrichment Centers. Childcare will be offered Monday-Friday, from 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. 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.
Essential workers who are New York City residents and would like to enroll in one of these centers need to complete this Regional Enrichment Center (REC) Enrollment Form. The form needs to be completed for every child, and the worker will then receive an email confirming your child’s center assignment.
