Admissions to our NYC Preschool
Dear Prospective Families,
The selection of a preschool, your child’s introduction to formal education, is an important and sometimes difficult decision. Preschool of the Arts aims to provide an admissions process that facilitates thoughtful and purposeful exploration of our NYC preschool center. Each step of the process is designed to help your family become better acquainted with our program. Additionally, this process allows ample opportunities for the NYC Preschool of the Arts team to get to know you and your child.
Our NYC preschools, located in Chelsea/ Flatiron, East Village / Cooper Square, Gramercy Park, ensures that your child will be artistically stimulated not only in the classroom, but outside as well. We believe artistic growth is a constant process that begins in the classroom and extends into the world beyond. As we take small steps towards your child’s development in the classroom, we are cultivating a worldview they can carry beyond our New York City preschool walls.
We look forward to meeting you and learning about your family’s interests and values. We are grateful for your interest in our preschool. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or curiosities at 212-366-5053.
