Wonderful pre-school. They leave nothing to be desired. The teachers are loving, caring & calm. The curriculum far exceeds my expectations without being hard on the kids. They make learning fun. The staff is available and receptive. We couldn't ask for more.

I am delighted that 82nd Street Academics was my daughter’s first school. She started in the pre-school/nursery school program a few weeks before her third birthday. A year and a half later, she is enjoying UPK and the extended day program. My daughter loves going to school, and is always excited about the things she is doing and learning there. She explains so many things to me with such a sense of authority. She loves to narrate how firefighters put out fires, and show that she can make the letter “c” with her hand. She re-tells the stories that they read in class, and she and her four year old peers burst into song during weekend playdates, singing songs they learned together in class. Today when I picked her up, she was so engaged in a puzzle that she did not want to leave until she was done. The playground is wonderful in the warm weather, and in the cold weather they go to the multipurpose room and ride tricycles. When I miss her during the day, I can watch her classroom live on my work or home computer. The teachers are excellent, and the school administration is especially accommodating to working parents with busy schedules. They even stay open when the public schools are closed.
