A Curriculum to Foster Engaged, Motivated Thinkers
We know how critical this early stage of your child’s life is to ensure their success in the world around them. We follow the UK’s Early Years Foundation Stage framework, which allows our teachers to tailor learning experiences to the needs of every child across seven areas of their education. We also provide specialist lessons in languages (Spanish French, and Mandarin, through songs and games), music, art, dance, drama, swimming, and PE, while collaborating with the world-class experts and resources of The Juilliard School, MIT, and UNICEF.
By observing and recording each stage of your child’s development, we guide them through play and planned activities, so they’ll gain experiences that encourage:
- Physical development
- Communication and language skills
- Personal, social, and emotional development
- Mathematics, problem solving, and reasoning
- An understanding of the world
- Expressive arts and creative development
- A love of literacy
A Truly Personalized Approach in Our New York Preschool
Your child's learning experience is as unique as they are. Our small class sizes and ideal teacher-to-child ratios of 6:1 enable individualized teaching everywhere, as we foster a love of learning. From the child’s perspective, our curriculum delivers the fun, real-life, concrete experiences they need to enjoy learning and connect with the world. Through careful observation and ongoing assessment, we set unique learning goals for every child and regularly review these targets in partnership with the parents or guardians.
Play: The Brain's Favorite Way to Learn
Play is central to our Early Years approach. Our curriculum centers on learning experiences where children make sense of the things and people around them; investigate the world; and form relationships and interactions. We all learn best when we’re motivated, interested, happy, and engaged in experiences which fascinate and challenge us. At NAISNY, we’re proud that our facilities and resources provide the children in our care with a safe, secure, and happy environment, where they can continually play and develop their natural skills of inquiry, creativity, and critical thinking. This lays the foundation for success in their future education.
