Manhattan Schoolhouse, New York City’s Premier Preschool, Daycare and UPK
Manhattan Schoolhouse warmly welcomes families to a Reggio Emilia inspired school where every child’s intellectual, emotional, social and moral potential is thoughtfully cultivated in an environment of trust and partnership between parents, educators, children and community.
At Manhattan Schoolhouse, children are free to explore, imagine, and create in a safe, loving, respectful and nurturing environment which prepares them for tomorrow’s world today.
With three locations in the Upper East Side, we have created culturally rich and inspiring child centered learning environments, providing full-time, extended hour and part-time programs. Manhattan Schoolhouse provides care that is rooted in the belief that every interaction with each child matters.
We maintain a low teacher/child ratio that ensures each child gets the attention he or she needs. Throughout the day, children engage in dynamic projects as vehicles for learning. Children work with open-ended, recyclable materials and with various mediums of art. Every classroom has daily movement activities, music classes, and foreign languages are taught as well. Manhattan Schoolhouse believes in providing a healthy lifestyle through nutrition and exercise. Children enjoy freshly made family style meals and snacks, fostering the joyous experience of eating communally.
Our children grow in a loving and intellectually stimulating environment. Throughout their time with us, they learn to collaborate, share, treat others with kindness and respect, and explore their interests. Children graduate our program ready for kindergarten and with an understanding of their part in our global world.
