A cavalcade of City Council members who've long pushed for universal 3-K joined de Blasio and Porter. Council Member Ben Kallos noted he has a 3-year-old daughter himself and said his family will be applying for the program.
"Mayor de Blasio, I've been asking for this for so many years, what will we talk about?" Kallos said.
De Blasio said the ultimate goal for the program is about 60,000 slots for children.
