The Department of Education is in talks with the St. Thomas Aquinas Diocese to secure a longtime lease for a childcare facility, according to Council Member Brad Lander, who spoke at last week’s Community Board 6 meeting. The Diocese, at 9th Street and 4th Avenue in Park Slope, currently houses students displaced due to the PS 133 construction (pictured). We previously reported that school construction would last until September 2013, one year longer than expected, and the diocese would in turn extend its lease for the extra school year. However, it was unclear whether DOE would keep the space after PS 133 reopened. Lander says he is “optimistic” about the possibility of a longtime lease and said the space would be used as an early childcare center to avoid school overcrowding.
