Your Child’s First Experience With School…
…Will Be Filled With Life-Long Memories and Confidence
It is our purpose to create a nurturing and happy environment so that the word ‘school’ will have only the most pleasant associations.
As parents ourselves, we have experienced the need for a center such as ours when our child was small – a stimulating place with challenging activities where children received love and attention while we had a chance to rest, work, or make time for ourselves in other ways.
Our center is a place where parents find support and reassuring opportunities to talk to the directors, the teachers, and other parents, especially during those minor, difficult, but normal periods in young children’s growth when it is so very important to discover that “this too shall pass.”
Village Preschool Center (VPC) is fully-licensed for children ages 2-5 years old. We offer rich academics in a playful, nurturing environment. We are known for our: high teacher/student ratio, a remarkably trained staff, as well as, hand-picked specialists in French, Science, reading, music and art. We operate year-round and have our own spacious and sky lit Playtrium.
VPC has been serving the Village and Chelsea families for over 40 years. We are located in the heart of Greenwich Village, in our spacious 7,000 sq. ft. landmarked, state-of-the-art, building.
Our teaching approach combines the best of Montessori, Bank Street and Reggio Emilia philosophies. Our high level of academics is achieved, mostly, by our belief in silliness and laughter – we want our children to associate school and teachers with happiness and fun; making school a place where they want to be.
Suzette & Brunie,
Our graduates are extremely prepared, academically and socially, to move on to kindergarten, and are accepted in the best ongoing public and private schools in the city.
Among the most important responsibilities of our preschool are preparation for kindergarten and placement of our graduates in ongoing schools. We are very proud of the children’s success in being accepted at selective schools.
