What a year we have had! We launched a new big update to our website back in October, have seen our website traffic increase dramatically over the year, along with our amazing social media followers. We can happily say that 2014 was a great year for us at New York Loves Kids.
Behind the scenes we are squirreling away with new ideas, and collaborations, to make the family life experience in NYC even more memory making.

Kids can construct a sculptural Hanukkah menorah with funky found objects, dance to the music of Shirlala, see the Hanukkah story brought to life through a drawing performance with Jeff Hopkins, and explore the Museum’s world-famous collection of Hanukkah lamps.
Then wonder no more! Why have it sitting on your stoop, or in your home rotting after Halloween is over. Why not make an event of it, and have the best time smashing it up!
Once they are smashed, they are then composted - what's not to love!

Annual Registration Effort for New or Re-entering Students Runs August 27 - September 12
The New York City Department of Education has opened ten temporary Registration Centers across the five boroughs to make it easy for new students to enroll in school, and assist families who may have enrollment questions. The ten sites - an increase from nine locations last year - include a new location at PS/IS 218 in the Bronx to help ensure that local community needs are met. For the first time, the Department has specially trained staff at each site to help families looking to enroll their child in pre-K. The Department also added more interpreters than in past years to help ensure that families are able to access the information and services they need in a variety of languages.
