One vision, one mission - 4 locations!

Preschool of the Arts was formed in the East Village over 20 years ago with the mission to provide downtown families with a stellar preschool experience. As our school began to develop a reputation for excellence in education as well as a warm and welcoming atmosphere, we saw the need to expand in order to better serve our community. We wanted to ensure that each of our schools retained the character of our original vision for Preschool of the Arts while being accessible and in walking distance to the communities and families downtown.

We are thrilled and honored to provide a boutique school experience to our downtown families in Gramercy Park, Chelsea, Flatiron, Union Square and Greenwich Village and their surrounding neighborhoods.
