(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Tuesday, May 15, at 2:30 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser will award two available child care spaces to CommuniKids and Kiddie University, one space at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) and the other at the Deanwood Recreation Center. CommuniKids is an award-winning, multi-language immersion school that will provide additional, free pre-K3 and pre-K4 seats to District residents at the University of the District of Columbia, and Kiddie University will provide a Spanish-immersion program that incorporates science, technology, engineering, and mathematics at the Deanwood Recreation Center.
In February, Mayor Bowser announced her Administration’s commitment to create approximately 1,000 new infant and toddler child care seats to meet the needs of families in Washington, DC. Part of the announcement included the identification of three spaces in District-owned buildings that would be leased to private child care providers to create affordable, high-quality child care seats.
