Pre K & Kindergarten

Admissions Information

Pre - Kindergarten

    We have created a positive learning environment where children feel safe and nurtured. Our teachers in all classrooms work together to create engaging units of study that are aligned with NYC Pre K for All standards. Teachers create many hands-on collaborative experiences that build a strong community while learning about a particular topic.

    We're always working to improve our practice. Teachers have common planning time where they hash out ideas and try out concepts before bringing them to their students. They also work with an instructional leader to collaborate and share ideas for best practice,  as well as visiting

other schools throughout the city so that best city-wide practices can be observed and adapted to meet the needs of our school/students.
