Manhattan Schoolhouse Preschool
The Manhattan Schoolhouse Preschool in the Upper East Side is dedicated to providing quality care and education to children ages 3-5 years old. We aspire to build strong partnerships between families, children, and school in order to ensure each child has a safe, positive, joyful, and nurturing school experience.
MSH Preschool is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy to early childhood education. Children at our preschool are called Magicians, Wizards, Scientists and Artists; all of whom engage in long-term projects that are inspired by children’s interests, ideas, questions, and experiences. Multi-sensory methods are used as teachers differentiate their approach to meet the varying learning styles and developmental needs of each child.
Each day, our preschoolers express themselves through a variety of media including, but not limited to, paint, clay, collage, music, dance, storytelling, blocks, natural materials, and recycled materials. Weekly music and yoga classes, taught by specialists, awaken the children’s interests and stimulate health and wellness. A daily walk around the neighborhood and to the park promote physical development and exploration. After, a nutritious and communal lunch is served that makes the experience of eating a joy that we all share together.
