FYI: The Administration for Children’s Services announced this morning that it has completed negotiations with 60 childcare agencies to create an additional 3,000 slots for subsidized childcare throughout the five boroughs. Almost 1,800 of those slots will be available immediately, with the rest expected to be open by the end of the year. Most of the total new openings, over 1,800 slots, will be in center-care programs, with just under 1,200 in programs run out of caregivers’ homes.
