The Learning Environment
We strive to provide a safe, stimulating, fun and educational environment. We utilize various educational methods in our curriculum such as Montessori and Reggio Emilia. Cooking, science, music and art are a big part of our learning environment.
In order to maintain a high standard of child care in our preschool program, all our teachers are cleared by the New York State Dept of Health and are subject to thorough background checks that include fingerprinting
We value and understand
the importance of a small teacher to child ratio to facilitate the learning process, so we maintain a teacher/student ratio of 1 teacher for every 4 students.
We strive to be the most affordable and highest quality choice for preschool in the neighborhood. Our schedules are very flexible and we will work with families on a case by case basis to provide you with care for your child when you need it, whether it be full or part-day, morning or afternoon, part week or everyday.
