We wholeheartedly embrace and encourage parental involvement in our NYC preschool and understand how it enriches our program and the lives of our children.
We invite parents and grandparents to become our partners in their children’s education by always welcoming them into our school, including them in holiday celebrations, and encouraging them to visit classrooms to share their areas of special interest and expertise. We cherish the warm relationship we enjoy with our parents that is regularly nurtured through such programs as our parent social, family holiday and Shabbat events, Me and My Favorite Guy Day, and Moms and Muffins, to name a few.
A strong home- school connection demonstrates to children that we are all working toward the same goals and makes the lessons we impart at school even more significant and enduring.
We educate parents about our unique educational philosophy and keep them abreast of activities in their children’s classrooms through weekly classroom newsletters. Parents learn precisely how we weave the educational disciplines together through written descriptions of activities and photographs of their children engaged in learning throughout the day. Through newsletters, families also attain important information such as the dates of school celebrations and holiday events and news of happy occasions such as weddings, births, and student birthdays. Newsletters are our opportunity to provide parents a window into how their children spend their day at our Chelsea preschool.
We welcome and encourage parent participation in our program and consider our PARTNERSHIP with parents pivotal in shaping and enriching the early childhood experience. Continuous communication is the cornerstone of this relationship which heavily relies on reciprocal dialogue.
We place a great emphasis on our COMMUNITY. In order to foster this formation within our preschool and woven through our larger community, we diligently integrate innovative family events and holiday programming.
Our future is shaped by the children of today. We aim to infuse our children with the passion to become lifelong learners with an insatiable quest for learning and an understanding of the world. At Preschool of the Arts children build the foundation to support all of their future endeavors as well as sustaining our past and it`s values.
