Manhattan Schoolhouse Daycare

The Manhattan Schoolhouse daycare curriculum specializes in meeting the needs of infants and toddlers in a safe and nurturing environment.

Upper East Side's Best DaycareOur experienced teachers encourage our youngest children to interact with the environment and with peers in a way that works to satisfy their developmental drive to explore. We appreciate the curiosity of our children and their need to venture out beyond what they already know, in safe, supportive ways.

Children are placed into one of four groups based on their age:

EXPLORERS – 3 to 12 months
CREATORS – 12 to 24 months
BUILDERS – 15 to 24 months
DREAMERS – 24  months to 3 years
SEEKERS – 24 months to 3 years

We introduce all children to many different forms of play and media to broaden their understanding of the world around them. Teachers value their dual role as caregiver and teacher and provide an emergent curriculum that focuses in on all areas of development including feeding, napping, toilet training, rolling, crawling, walking, running, dancing, climbing, painting, pretending, block building, singing, socializing, communicating, enjoying, and more. Children are encouraged to try out new things daily as they work on mastering the many developmental milestones.
