At 82nd Street Academics, we provide children with positive early education experiences that invite students to develop a love for learning. While many of our educational practices are similar to other quality schools, we also have three beliefs about childhood development.
Children eligible to participate in our 3 year old preschool programs have birth dates between January 1, 2013 and February 29, 2014 for the 2016-2017 School Year or January 1, 2012 and February 29, 2013 for the 2015-16 school year. Our student-teacher ratio in Preschool is 16:3. Lead Teachers have New York State certification in Early Childhood Education. Our program is fully licensed by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. We accept HRA and ACD vouchers, please obtain voucher before registering for a program with 82nd Street Academics. Read about our Learning Park & Playground here!
“Our daughter and nephew both attend 82nd Street Academics. Our family is impressed with the special care that is offered to our children. My first concern was that my daughter is a very picky eater. I am always able to email her teacher, Ms. Cindy, with any doubts and concerns and she always writes back with reassuring answers and helpful ideas. She also shares information and summarizes what they taught in class. My husband and I appreciate this very much. One day our daughter came home and talked so much about Ms. Kia and Mr. Esteban helping her with lots of things like putting on her jacket and shoes and refilling her water bottle. That’s when I knew our child was in good hands. Our daughter’s learning experience at 82nd Street Academics is fun and she is highly motivated. This school has a genuinely caring team that both students and parents can enjoy. Thank you.” – The Cuyugan Family, UPK
