Do you have a little one who is ready for preschool next year? Parents now have a new option for their children’s education. New York Preschool has a brand new location in Long Island City that is now enrolling 2’s and 3’s for the 2014-2015 school year. They are holding an Open House for interested parents on Thursday, November 14 (call 212-991-6700 to RSVP; details below).
New York Preschool offers a warm and welcoming place for children to learn and grow through its play-based, child centered curriculum. Classes utilize the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, self-help and aesthetic areas to develop each child. A team of highly qualified experts will introduce key, age-appropriate lessons to nurture a lifelong love of learning.
The 2’s Program
The 2’s program offers a gentle separation between child and parent. Classes meet either two, three or five days a week for two hours a day with the option to add a third hour in the second half of the year. These classes incorporate art, gym, and music, with a focus on sensory and social development.
Children are introduced to age-appropriate letter recognition and receptive language, fostered through handling books, listening to stories as well as music, movement and theater. Each week instructors teach fundamental math skills such as numbers, geometry, sorting and ordering as well as beginning reasoning skills with sensory exploration and science units.
2’s students build self-confidence and body awareness through activities engaging balance, strength and hand-eye coordination. Verbal, social and fine motor skills are developed through imaginative art projects and an energetic, musical circle time.
The 3’s Program
The 3’s program meets five days per week for three hours per day. The innovative curriculum uses interactive literacy and thematic learning experiences to strengthen social, intellectual and physical skills through the use of language, math, science, social studies, gymnastics, dance and art.
Teachers promote language and literacy by introducing stimulating and challenging activities that reinforce letter identification, phonemic awareness, expressive and receptive language, oral language comprehension and concepts of print. To develop math skills, children use block building, puzzle and patterning activities. Science and social studies lessons reinforce creative problem solving skills as well as the world around us.
Classes also promote advanced motor skills through gymnastics, sports and dance classes in the New York Preschool’s state of the art gym.
