Dedicated Teachers & Staff

Staff members strive to be aware of each child’s needs and learning readiness, and they attempt to meet these needs through a wide range of preschool activities.

We provide your family with the best early childhood educators who are certified according to the New York State Department of Education and the New York City Department of Health, because we understand that as early childhood educators, we must address the development of the whole child.
