Our flagship: bringing a sense of “home” to NYC

121 West 19th Street, New York, NY 10011

Set in the heart of the vibrant Chelsea neighborhood, just a hop, skip and jump from the Village, Union Square and Flatiron neighborhoods, the Chelsea Preschool Of The Arts is one of our most popular locations.

Located on 19th St between 6th and 7th Avenues, our POTA Chelsea is the main Preschool Of The Arts campus. Amenities include a spacious indoor gym, an inspiring outdoor play space, an indoor garden, beautiful state of the art classrooms, large social hall, and the acclaimed J. Klaynberg Art Gallery.

Since its opening over 10 years ago, the Chelsea Main Campus has attracted parents seeking a stellar education for their children. POTA’s Reggio-inspired curriculum encourages little minds towards mastery of life, cognitive, and social skills.

We are a premiere, boutique preschool pulsating with the beat of NYC. At a recent gala dinner, former president Bill Clinton recognized our progressive, child-centered educational philosophy as being the future of early education. Apply now for openings in our Chelsea preschool!

Indoor Garden

Our indoor garden is the focal point of our communal space where children gather for school-wide celebrations and which they enjoy during drop off and pick up. Our plants are lovingly cared for year-round by our community of parents, children and teachers.

Professional Art Gallery

We feature our professional art Gallery where our children’s artwork is professionally curated to highlight their work. Gallery Openings are times that our families come together in celebration of their children’s learning and artwork.
