Dear prospective family,

The selection of a preschool; your child’s introduction to formal education is an important and sometimes difficult decision. Preschool of the Arts provides an admissions route that facilitates a thoughtful and purposeful exploration of our NYC learning and living environments. Each step of this intentional process is designed to help your family become better acquainted with our program. Additionally, this journey allows ample opportunities for our Preschool of the Arts community to form relationships with you and your child. Our program welcomes children the ages of 18 months to 5 years old. Our Gramercy center caters to infants 6 months to preschool 5 years old.

Preschool of the Arts ensures that your child will be artistically stimulated inside the comfort of their classroom, and beyond as they venture outdoors and explore NYC icons. We believe artistic expression is a constant process that begins with our youngest learners and explorers, and is deepened and refined as they form relationships and connections with their world. Each step is part of a larger story or narrative that defines the individual and collective members of our community; showcasing relationships and the value of inter-subjectivity. Your child’s journey has endless possibilities and applications well beyond the walls, spaces and environments that define Preschool of Arts. Our preschool environment is one that fosters questions, provokes curiosity and stimulates Intellectual growth.  Our students complete the 4 year learning journey ready to enter the best Private and Public schools.

We look forward to meeting you and learning about your family’s interests and values. Please feel comfortable to contact us regarding questions, thoughts and or curiosities at 212-229-9075 or email admissions@nycpreschool.org.

Warm regards,

Director of Admissions
