WILLIAMSBURG — The school year may have started almost two months ago, but parents have a few days left to enroll their kids in free city-sponsored Pre-K  — and dozens of North Brooklyn programs still have open slots.

WIlliamsburg's P.S. 196, P.S. 17, and P.S. 380 have vacancies and community-based organizations (daycares funded by the city) throughout Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick also have openings, according to the city's Department of Education. 

The deadline to enroll is Oct. 31, and parents can call the contact for each program listed on the DOE's vacancy flyers for Bushwick and for Williamsburg.

Other school districts throughout all five boroughs also have openings which can be found on the agency's website. Students must have been born by Dec. 31 of 2008.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Education did not immediately respond to requests for the number of vacancies in each North Brooklyn school.
