Curriculum units incorporate: language arts, math concepts, science, social studies, art, music, large & small motor skills and support social/emotional development. These units guide the classroom activities and trips taken as a class.

The day begins with free play. During this time the children move from activity to activity, doing group projects, having one-on-one time with a teacher, building, exploring, and creating.

Everyone helps to clean up and gathers for “meeting time” to count, have fun with numbers, sing, hear a story and have a lively discussion.

Snack follows, an important opportunity to socialize. After eating, the children brush their teeth and move to the next activity.

Activities include: Swim lessons (twice a week), music, creative dance, gardening & outdoor play.

A final meeting before dismissal wraps up the morning with a book, songs and discussions about the curriculum topic and events of the morning.

Outdoor play in in our private space, next to the classroom. It is equipped with a climber, riding toys, a sand box and planters which are used for projects led by our gardening teacher.

Swim lessons are in the Manhattan Plaza Heath Club, which is right next door.

As the children approach kindergarten age, the director offers guidance in the kindergarten application process. Our children move on to excellent public schools and programs, as well as a full range of independent schools.
