Harlem Rallies To Save Nasry Michelen Day Care From Closure

nasry child care in harlemOn Thursday, May 28, Harlem City Council Member Mark Levine, State Senator Adriano Espaillat, concerned parents, and members of the community will call on the New York City Administration of Children’s Services (ACS)…

…to reconsider their decision not to award a new Early Learn daycare contract to Nasry Michelen Day Care (Nasry), located in West Harlem. If no contract is awarded to Nasry, the center would be moved from its current site and could be forced to cease operations. ACS issued a request for proposals for a host of day care centers in a process that has led several providers across the city to lose their space and programming.

Nasry is a cherished ACS day care center that has served the community with quality childcare services for over 30 years. Nasry, a small single-site provider, scored 91 points out of a potential 100 on their proposal to ACS–an impressive and near perfect score. The decision regarding Nasry’s appeal stands to impact over 150 children, and would affect more than 350 family members.
