flatiron Preschool of the Arts

A space inspired by art and infused with literature

40 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10010

You can find the Flatiron Preschool Of The Arts just steps from Madison Sq. Park and the landmark Flatiron building. Situated in the trendy Flatiron neighborhood, sandwiched between Chelsea and Gramercy Park, our preschool attracts local parents looking for a top notch early childhood experience.

Inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach, our educational philosophy interprets and adapts Reggio theory to guide our students towards mastery of life as well as cognitive, and social skills. At our Flatiron location, children can take advantage of our indoor gym, beautiful modern two floor library, state of the art performance theatre, fully equipped art studio, and magical classrooms.

Our schools are unified by our shared vision and mission; namely the “primacy effect” which emphasizes that the earliest events in life are the most formative ones and are critical in shaping children’s long term development.

We are a collection of boutique schools for young children where each child’s intellectual, emotional, social, and moral potentials are carefully cultivated and guided.

Expansive children’s library

Our library spans two floors and includes a wide array of children’s books as well as cozy areas for parents, children and teachers to soak up the joys of children’s literature.

Art Studio

Our art studio is designed to engage and inspire. With tons of natural light, our children are encouraged to use our professional art materials to get creative in this space curated to spark curiosity and exploration.
