Since 1938, the 92nd Street Y Nursery School has provided a warm and creative atmosphere that fosters young children's imagination, curiosity and intellect.
Our program facilitates children's social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth through a curriculum attuned to children's unique patterns of development. We believe children learn best in a well organized program that emphasizes creative expression, provides opportunities for play and encourages respect for others. Our goal is for children to become responsible members of their classroom community and develop the confidence and independence. We are committed to building a strong sense of connection between parents, teachers and children. We firmly believe that communication between parents and the school is essential in fostering young children’s growth. The celebration of Shabbat and Jewish holidays teaches children the joy of Jewish culture and heritage.
A highly experienced faculty trained in early childhood education works with children individually and in groups fostering creative expression through art, music, movement and language.
Enrollment: 172 children, ages 2.6 to 5 years old.
