A guided and catered approach to placement

Preparing your child for Kindergarten and beyond

The POTA Outplacement Plan
Graduates of Preschool of the Arts continue on to the finest public and private schools in New York City. Preschool of the Arts plays a vital role in supporting our graduates’ transition from preschool to elementary school.

Our Outplacement Plan begins with the premise that each child is unique and has his/her own learning style and needs. During their preschool years, we take great care to learn about each of our students and to appreciate their dispositions, strengths, and academic abilities. Possessed with this deep knowledge of our children, we help guide our parents towards programs that best match their child’s aspirations and needs and where their child has the greatest chance to flourish.

Each year, during the fall semester, parents of Pre-K children are invited to our Ongoing schools Seminar. This informative and reassuring seminar outlines the ongoing schools process, ERB Testing and the choice of public and private Schools. The school director meets individually with each family to provide direction in navigating this important process - from choosing the most suitable school for their child through supporting their child during the testing and interview process.

Preschool of the Arts graduates are prepared, recognized and appreciated by ongoing schools. They attend a wide range of schools in the public and private sphere. Families ultimately choose schools that best suit their learning goals, including single gender, traditional, progressive, art-based and religious schools. As a result of our alumni’s track record of academic preparedness and character development, we have developed strong relationships with public, private, and Jewish schools throughout New York City.
